Aruba gets award for fossil fuel-free ambition
Aruba's sustainable energy initiatives have won international recognition. The Caribbean island took top spot in the Destination Leadership category of the National Geographic World Legacy Awards.
Recognizing Aruba's effort to be the world's first country free of fossil fuels, the award was presented during Berlin’s international travel fair.
The awards showcase the travel companies and organizations leading the way in sustainable tourism.
Aruba's Minister of Integration, Infrastructure and Environment, Oslin Sevinger, said: ‘In recent years we have worked closely with the world’s most innovative thinkers on this issue, and we are proud that our efforts and best practices are rubbing off on other Caribbean islands. This is just the beginning.'
Aruba remains on track to be free of fossil fuels by 2020.
