An essential and fundamental principle of Grupo Marinas del Mediterráneo is to base any development or growth strategy on its clear and decisive commitment to the environment. It is conscious of its responsibility of managing an asset that is not only in the public domain but, at the same time, is one of high natural value.
Marinas, and in general the whole coastline, are environments which are very sensitive to human action and uncontrolled industrial activity can irreversibly exhaust their assets. A clear commitment to respect the environment has been endorsed by the awarding during several successive years of the Blue Flag (www.blueflag.org) to all marinas of the Group. This distinction ensures that every marina and beach to which it is granted has attained a very high level of quality.
At present Grupo Marinas del Mediterráneo is involved in the development of its own Environmental Management Manual, at the same time as redefining its work procedures to ensure a lesser environmental impact in each of its daily tasks. This process will culminate in the corresponding certification guaranteeing fulfilment of the ISO 14000 standard.
