THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

GREECE: Ambitious targets for marine protection

D-Marin cemented its commitment to protecting the marine environment by supporting a critical carbon measurement project for the Our Ocean 2024 Conference in Athens.

The project, which aligned with a €700 million government spend to protect maritime space, provided a key figure used to offset emissions for the event. The premium marina brand is renowned for its ESG programme and for creating sustainable marinas and has invested significantly in green technology, clean energy and other initiatives.

The conference, which was opened by Greek prime minister Mr Kyriakos Mitsotakis and former American politician Secretary John Kerry, saw Greece commit its spend to marine conservation and protection in two stages by 2026 and 2030. D-Marin is a key advocate of the Greek blue economy, which is an area of focus for 21 Greek marine sustainability actions outlined during the event.

Areti Priovolou, health, safety and environmental officer of D-Marin, said: “As the conference highlights, we believe that protecting the ocean is key to maintaining a healthy planet. That’s why we’re taking action, ensuring sustainable marinas will safeguard the sea for generations to come. We are reaffirming our commitment to reducing emissions by 42% by 2030, totally aligned with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) in which we actively participate. We are not doing this alone and are committed to collaborative efforts from across the globe, which are needed to make a significant improvement.”
