THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

Flying the Blue Flag

D-Marin has been granted the iconic Blue Flag Award at 14 of its 20 marinas, recognising its commitment across the network to protecting the environment and marine life.

The flags have been earned through a series of initiatives, which are part of D-Marin’s ongoing Environmental Social Governance (ESG) commitments across its premium marina portfolio, and are proudly flown at marinas in Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Italy and Spain.
Water quality testing and treatment, coastal clean-ups involving the marina teams and local community, use of renewable energy, health and safety training, ethical waste management and sustainable investments are all activities which contribute to renewal of Blue Flag.
“D-Marin marinas are based in the most spectacular yachting destinations in the world and we want to do our part to protect these regions,” says health, safety and environmental officer Areti Priovolou. “Our robust ESG strategy to create sustainable marinas for present and future generations is welcomed with open arms by all our marinas. The commitment is the least we can do to help the destinations we call home, and we will always seek new ways to enhance the environment and marine life.”
Blue Flag, operated by the Foundation for Environmental Education, is one of the most recognised awards for beaches and marinas. Recipients must meet stringent criteria and flags are renewed annually to ensure ongoing responsibility. Zea Marina in Greece is the most recent D-Marin marina to be granted a Blue Flag while other marinas have received renewals from 2022.
