MDL Marinas have announced the launch of their new Green Strategy, committing to sustainability and focusing on the prevention of environmental issues through education and new eco initiatives. MDL Marinas have also joined forces with eight other sailing and marine organisations under ‘Cleaner Marina’, an initiative championing marinas, ports and harbours around the world as guardians of cleaner waters. Joining boatfolk, savvy navvy, Ecoworks Marine, Clean Sailors, the Ocean Cruising Club, The SeaCleaners, Finsulate and Harba, MDL will support and promote the Cleaner Marina initiative. Initiated by Clean Sailors and launched in July this year, Cleaner Marina aims to create a community of marinas around the world that is implementing practices that help to safeguard the health of the marine ecosystem.
The UK has an ambitious target of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. MDL are committed to supporting this, and their Green Strategy is the beginning of a journey to make them the UK’s most sustainable marina group, developing a culture of environmental awareness and care among their customers and teams.
‘We’re proud of everything we’ve achieved so far, but we know there’s more to do as a marina group, and as part of the leisure marine industry,’ said Tim Mayer, Sales and Marketing Director at MDL. ‘We’ve committed to being part of the solution through our new Green Strategy, which sets out our plan to navigate to #greenermarinas. Through the use of our hashtag, we want to help educate anyone who comes to our marinas on best environmental practices, both ashore and while out boating.’
