FIC Green

Fisher Island Club is committed to making strides towards more sustainable practices and community education to do our part to preserve the environment.

Part of our long-term strategy and goals include waste reduction, energy conservation, and engaging our community to educate and inspire our Members and Island residents to join us in creating a larger scale difference.

The launch of our sustainability efforts began in 2019 as a small group of Club associates working to conserve resources and implement environmentally-sound practices throughout the Club. We started with lofty goals, and we are proud to share that we have already implemented quite a few Club-wide initiatives.

We plan to offer sustainable programming and initiatives ranging from educational lectures to impact activities designed to make a difference.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY & CONSERVATION

Your Subtitle Goes Here
Lighting throughout the Club has been updated with sensors and controls to save on energy and costs. Engineering is also working on a Frequency Drive Project, which will prevent our A/C systems from running 100% all night. The completion of this project will result in 50% savings on cost, conservation, and equipment. Rainwater sensors were installed in The Links golf course to detect rainfall and prevent the irrigation system from running during a rain event. Potential savings could reach 200K gallons of water per rain event, as well as thousands of dollars in water usage. We are part of Clean the World soap and amenity recycling program. Clean the World gives discarded soap bars and bottles a second life by providing hygiene kits to underserved communities while educating those most affected about clean water and sanitation. We’ve also launched a Linen & Towel Conservation Program consisting of an in-room communication that provides guests the option to participate in water conservation through the reuse of towels and linens. When guests participate, hotels save money in reduced water, energy, labor, detergent and sheet/towel replacement costs.

WASTE REDUCTION

Our restaurant cooking oil is recycled by Dar Pro Solutions and is being turned into renewable diesel, which can be used in diesel vehicles (trucks, heavy equipment, etc.).

ELIMINATING SINGLE-USE PLASTICS

Your Subtitle Goes Here

Plastics are the most common form of marine pollution found in our oceans. Many types of birds, sea turtles and other animals call Fisher Island home, and it is extremely important we eliminate plastics in an effort to help reduce the effect it has on local marine wildlife. We have been working towards our goal of eliminating all single-use plastics and are working on eliminating plastic water bottles. That’s 10,000 plastic water bottles per month!

DESIGNATIONS

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
(AWARDED CLEAN & RESILIENT MARINA)

The Clean and Resilient Marina Program calls for the “promotion and expansion of resilient and environmentally responsible operations and best management practices at marinas.” It builds on the Clean Marina Certification programs proven throughout the Gulf of Mexico states. This improved program complements Clean Marina practices already in place and provides additional recommendations to strengthen marinas’ ability to withstand natural and man-made disasters.

 

FLORIDA GREEN LODGING
(AWARDED A THREE PALMS DESIGNATION)

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection designates and recognizes lodging facilities that make a commitment to conserve and protect Florida’s natural resources through the Florida Green Lodging Program. The program’s environmental guidelines allow the hospitality industry to evaluate its operations, set goals and take specific actions to continuously improve environmental performance. Fisher Island Club has received the designation of Three Palms, which is the second-highest tier.

 

RECYCLE BALLS AWARD

Our Racquet Club was presented with a 3000 GREEN BALL AWARD from Recycle Balls. Because of the efforts of our tennis community, a total of 3000 tennis balls have been recycled and will now be kept out of US landfills!
