Supporting Sustainability

The RCI Green Award celebrates RCI affiliated resorts that actively engage in sustainable practices. To determine which resorts are leading the industry in sustainability, RCI has partnered with Green Circle to assess and rate all resorts that choose to enter the awards program.


Award entrants are judged on their innovations in energy and water conservation, waste management, community outreach, and environmental management.

Winners for 2015 have now been announced! Each will receive an RCI® Green Award plaque and a letter from RCI, and will be recognized for outstanding achievement in sustainability!
