Puerto Banús holds the certification that shows its commitment to protecting the environment

 

The ISO 14001 certification is an Environmental Management System (EMS) in which our marina assumes maximum environmental responsibility by reducing the environmental impact of our ordinary activities.

All organisations, regardless of their activity, size or geographical location, have to comply with an increasing number of environmental requirements imposed, not only by the competent Public Administration, but also by their own clients, users and society as a whole.

For this reason, it is essential to use professional and efficient tools that integrate the environment and sustainability into the overall management of the company. As part of our social and environmental commitment, Puerto Banús has been working for some time to achieve a more efficient and sustainable marina, which is why it has the ISO 14001 Certification.

Thanks to the implementation of an Environmental Management System, in accordance with the international ISO 14001 standard, Puerto Banús optimises the management of resources and waste, and also reduces the negative environmental impacts derived from the activity carried out and also those risks associated with accidental situations that may occur.

Prevention is undoubtedly a key factor in the sustainability of a territory and in any professional activity. In this way, the ISO 14001 certification allows Puerto Banús to demonstrate its commitment to environmental protection through the management of the environmental risks associated with the port activity carried out.

The international standard ISO 14001 -UNE EN ISO 14001 in Spain was created as a response to a global concern for the environment and the proliferation of regional and territorial environmental regulations. It is in this context that the need arises for a universal indicator to evaluate an organisation’s efforts to achieve reliable and adequate environmental protection.

As a result of the commitment to the Earth Summit and Climate Change, organised by the Conference on Environment and Development in June 1992 in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO)  created international environmental standards, later called ISO 14000, of which the certifiable standard ISO 14001:2015 is currently part of. Puerto Banús is certified with this certificate.

ISO 14001 assists in the identification and management of environmental risks associated with the internal processes of the activity carried out by Puerto Banús. This standard identifies requirements for effective risk management, considering the prevention and protection of the environment, legal compliance and socio-economic needs.

Environmental commitment

Puerto Banús considered ISO 14001 certification to demonstrate its commitment to sustainable management. The incorporation of environmental issues in the management of the marina and the increased involvement of senior management and partners in environmental management, enables the successful implementation of the strategic objectives that the port’s management has set itself in order to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) promoted by the United Nations.
