Sustainability At The Forefront
Last month we were delighted to be named joint winners of the Exhibitor Sustainability Award 2021 at the Southampton International Boat Show. The Award scheme was organised by British Marine and supported by The Green Blue a joint initiative between British Marine and the RYA. Sharing the award with Bentley Motors, we received the award in recognition of our long-term underlying commitment to environmentally responsible behaviour, and going the extra mile in terms of sustainable work practices at the Show and across our ten South coast marinas.
In addition, we are pleased to report that following the culmination of a three year monitoring programme of our marinas, a final audit of our flagship Swanwick Marina, as well as a review of our overall marina group processes, Premier Marinas have been awarded with recertification of ISO 14001:2015 for a further three years.
This award is affirmation of Premier Marinas’ hard work in maintaining a programme of routines that promote and practise environmental sustainability, and that as an organisation we continue to invest in initiatives that can positively impact the environment.
“We are proud that Premier Marinas has been reaccredited with this certification” said Premier’s new EHS Manager, Peter Wortley. “The audit team concluded that we fulfilled the tough standards, and our management system continues to enable us to proactively monitor and improve our working environment. We’ve always undertaken our environmental obligations seriously as an organisation and this recertification shows our dedication to consistently deliver safe and high-quality solutions in the marina industry, and in a manner that importantly protects the environment”.
