Town Quay marina is proud to receive recognition from The Green Blue for our commitment to sustainable development.

The Green Blue is an innovative environmental awareness initiative set up by the British Marine Federation and the Royal Yachting Association to promote the sustainable operation and development of the recreational boating industry.

At the marina’s media launch to celebrate the completion of the improvements works, The Green Blue presented Town Quay with a certificate for completing The Green Blue’s Toolkit and making the all important steps in implementing environmental change.

The Toolkit is an online self assessment tool which helps marine businesses to benchmark their environmental performance and identify opportunities to improve resource efficiency as well as cut costs.

The certificate highlights Town Quay Marina’s commitment to sustainability implementing resource saving systems wherever possible.

Dan Reading, The Green Blue’s Sustainability Officer commented: “We have presented this special certificate to Town Quay Marina in recognition of the work they have carried out to improve environmental facilities and the commitment they have made to continual improvement - today’s re-launch was a way to congratulate them.”

So now you can enjoy the new facilities with the added knowledge that every effort has been made to make them as environmentally friendly as possible.
