The business community on Bonaire is one of the driving forces behind Blue Destination. The Blue Destination Certification is a certification system to help local businesses operate more sustainably and socially.

Company Certification

Every company on Bonaire, whether large or small, can play an active role in sustainability. For example, they may make environmentally conscious choices when purchasing products, processing waste or using water and energy. Taking good care of your staff, informing and raising your customers’ awareness or ensuring a safe and clean environment also contributes to Bonaire as a Blue Destination.


In 2019, the ‘Blue Destination Certification’ was developed. The Blue Destination Certification is a way to inform, guide and reward companies on their way to a more sustainable and social business strategy.

What does it cost?

The Blue Destination Certification has been specifically designed to be affordable and attainable for businesses of all sizes. The annual costs depend on the size of the company, which is established on the basis of the number of full time employees (FTEs). The annual subscription costs for companies that offer accommodation, on the other hand, are based on the number of rooms. An audit takes place every two years
