We will meet the environmental legislation that relates to the operation of the marina (No: 2872), and where possible identify opportunities to adopt best practice over and above the minimum requirements by receiving monthly legislative updates.
We will ensure that marina boats are fuelled safely and responsibly to avoid spillages and pollution. All boats will have a spill kit ready when refuelling. Boat drivers will be trained in refuelling good practice and the use of spill kits.
We will minimise the use of electricity in all of our activities. For example; turning off lights, replacing old light bulbs with energy efficient models.
We will minimise the use of water in all of our activities. For example; fitting hoses with automatic trigger nozzles and turning off taps when not in use.
We will minimise the creation of waste. For example; we will only print and photocopy if absolutely essential and then print double-sided.
Where possible, we will use email rather than printed materials to communicate and promote our activities.
We will provide suitable containers for the disposal of hazardous waste streams.
We will encourage members to apply best management practises in dockyard area.
We will endeavour to take a sustainable approach to our operations.
We will publicise our environmental commitment and promote sustainability amongst our members and visitors on our website and marina notice boards.
We will measure our progress and review this policy on an annual basis.
