MARINA IBIZA IS GREENER THAN EVER

Marina Ibiza launches several steps aimed at caring for the surroundings and the environment and promotes, among its clients, the importance of good ecological and environmental habits when sailing around our islands.

The marina, as is common practice, continues its ongoing policy of awareness of environment care and strives each year to launch new and noteworthy activities to promote it. In words of the manager of this internationally renowned port, Daniel Marí, “it is vital for us to create awareness among customers regarding our waters in which they sail every year, they’re spectacular thanks to a number of factors and to its marine habitat, which has to be treated very carefully so we all can enjoy this Paradise forever. It is important to make them feel part of our environment and that care will benefit all of us”

Therefore, between late 2015 and early 2016, the marina held two important activities this season will make greener the marina and help customers preserve the sailing environment.

NEW IMAGE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIONS

Marina Ibiza has changed its logo. Playing with the term "green", it has become a purely organic memory element, showing its interest in transmitting its environmental value: MA(GREEN)A IBIZA. The logo, cool, relaxed and clearly alluding to the subject, will be used in each of the activities related to the environment carried out by the port.

SPECIAL RECYCLING BAGS FOR CLIENTS

Taking advantage of this notorious logo, especially for ecological actions, Marina Ibiza has built an information panel with recycling bags to encourage customers to practice recycling in their boats and during their stay in port. These resistant and high quality bags, -yellow to deposit plastic, green for glass and blue for paper-, will be given away to all customers wishing to use them. They have the right colors for selection of plastic, paper and glass on board and the marina has containers available to dispose such waste once they’re back from sailing.

As Daniel Marí says "all efforts are few. We want to make recycling habits comfortable for port users and thus encourage customers to follow good environmental practices”.

NEW WEBSITE SECTION REGARDING ANCHORING AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Marina Ibiza launches an environmental section on its website. And that section, in Spanish English, German or Russian, provides all kinds of information about the Posidonia and its care, the importance it has on our environment; some advice and recommendations for responsible anchoring, the best times of the year for anchoring. It also provides environmental advice to vessels and promotes the rational use of both concerning resources: water and electricity consumption. It also promotes getting the blue flag for boats being an award the marina already holds in its category.

This section has been programmed so that browsing can be easy and agile. And it will remain in continuous evolution throughout the year since it will be incorporating more news concerning the issue.

FLYERS RECOMMENDATION FOR USE OF RESOURCES

Furthermore, to reinforce this initiative, it has also promote a campaign to save water and electricity between customers, partners and friends via posters and flyers that in an original way intended minding all about the importance of this aspect.

These flyers will be distributed this year to all yachts arriving at the marina along with other welcome documentation.

MARINA IBIZA’S ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

To engage in activity directly related to the sea, the commitment to the environment is even greater, and Marina Ibiza’s desire caring for native marine species and maintaining water quality in the Mediterranean drives them to act every year with new initiatives.

The renowned environmental awards it holds such as the Blue Flag, EMAS, TÜV Rheinland Certifications with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 and the international cartification IMCI with the 5 Blue Star Marina support Marina Ibiza’s effort.

And besides, Marina Ibiza continues to work on new initiatives this year will be implemented with the aim of making better the environment in which we all sail.
