Chloë Harvey

Chloë Harvey is a Marine Biologist and has been a keen diver since the age of 12, spending most of her teenage years teaching others to enjoy the sights and sounds of the underwater world around the UK coastline.
Chloë and her partner JJ stumbled across in 2008 Green Fins while traveling in Thailand and was astonished to find out that it provided the only internationally recognised environmental industry standards for diving. Since then they have dedicated their lives to developing Green Fins into a programme which is providing business owners and national authorities with the tools and support needed to implement industry best practice and mitigate environmental risk. Through the UK charity Reef-World, and with the support of the UNEP, Chloë has built a skilled team who are successfully replicating Green Fins within major diving destinations across Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam and the Maldives.
Chloë believes that the potential influence of the diving industry as an agent for environmental change can far outweigh the environmental risk of diving activities, and this philosophy lies in the heart of Green Fins. She will never forget the environmental messages engrained in her by the guide who first introduced her to a coral reef when she was 14. Chloë has personally assessed the environmental performance of over 300 Green Fins dive centres, which gives her and the programme a unique insight into industry wide challenges to provide simple, affordable and lasting solutions to those challenges.
Dive centres join Green Fins for free by committing to implement the code of conduct and allowing qualified Green Fins Assessors to assess their environmental performance on an annual basis. Dive staff are then offered training in sustainable practices and educational materials are provided to enable ongoing awareness raising within the dive centre to staff and customers.
