Environmental practices are rewarded
Premier Marinas, owner and operator of nine UK marinas, has been rewarded for its environmental practices.
The organisation has received ISO 14001:2015 certification, an internationally recognised standard for running effective environmental management systems.
“We are proud that Premier Marinas has obtained this certification,” said CEO Pete Bradshaw. “We have acted in an environmentally responsible way for many years and this accreditation demonstrates how seriously we undertake our environmental obligations as an organisation and it shows our dedication to consistently delivering safe and high-quality solutions in the marina industry in a manner that protects the environment.”
As an organisation Premier has installed solar panels at six of its marinas and is on track this year to generate 417mwh of electricity and avoid 226 tons of CO2 emissions.
Two Seabins have been installed – at Port Solent and Southsea – each able to collect up to half a tonne of floating debris per year.
The group recycles waste across every site and has replaced all of its building light bulbs with energy saving ones that include PIR motion sensors.
The organisation also reduces business mileage with shared pool cars and has minimised noise pollution with the installation of white noise alarms on plant machinery.
To gain ISO 14001:2015 accreditation a comprehensive review was carried out over a six-month period which involved audits of Premier’s environmental management system and audits at selected marinas to ensure uniformity of working practices.
