            A Kodiak business has been honored by Adventure Green Alaska, the state's first tourism program to highlight sustainable business practices.

            Kodiak Island Charters was selected for AGA certification at the bronze level. The business is owned by Chris and Jai-Nan Fiala. The certification awards were announced during a tourism gathering in Palmer.

            Tour operators applying for the AGA certification respond to online application questions about

their commitment to the environment, participation in community and village events, awareness of climate change impacts, and green business practices. Business owners are also selected to participate in a personal interview and consultation with an AGA Board member.

AGA was launched in 2008 through the Alaska Wilderness Recreation and Tourism Association; a nonprofit trade organization for ecotourism businesses in Alaska.

In its initial year, AGA awarded Alaska tourism sustainable business certification to nine businesses. AGA is already planning a third certification process beginning today (Thursday). Business will have until June 30 to submit the AGA application.

Adventure Green Alaska program benefits include recognition on the program website:

and other travel-related websites. Training and additional resources for businesses interested in receiving the sustainable tourism certification will be made available in the future according to AGA board president Tony Turrini.
