Company’s values
Our values are established by using a PRISM format. A prism is a transparent, three-dimensional geometric shape with flat surfaces, typically two parallel bases and rectangular sides connecting them. When light enters a prism, it bends or refracts, revealing its component colors like a rainbow. Commonly a triangular piece of glass, prisms spread white light into beautiful displays of color, making them valuable in science and art. They’re used in physics to study light properties and in photography for effects like lens flares and rainbows, showcasing the wonders of the visible spectrum.

Our Environmental & Social Sustainability Charter, available online, outlines our holistic approach. This year, we obtained the Earth Check Gold Certification, making us the only certified tour operator on the island. Sustainability is a frequent topic in discussions with our partners and stakeholders. Through initiatives like The Giving Palm, we’ve donated over AFL 100K to local organizations. Our commitment extends to expanding recycling efforts, cleaning the Natural Bridge, adding solar to De Palm Island, and building a coral reef education center. Our quest doesn’t stop at maintaining standards; we aim for the Earth Check platinum designation.
  2. Diversification: Diversification is our next frontier. We’re exploring opportunities beyond our current offerings, including acquisitions, new service lines, and regional expansion. While some opportunities didn’t fit, exciting developments are in progress. Stay tuned for updates and be ready to leverage our strengths for new opportunities.
  3. Digitalization: Welcome to the age of Digitalization! Our newly launched Intranet reflects our commitment to digital transition. From maintenance software to AI adoption, we’re modernizing operations. Platforms like Revinate deepen customer connections, enhancing their De Palm experience. As we continue, every team member will experience the digital transformation differently, ensuring a modernized business.
