Marina Ibiza, in the Balearic Islands off the east coast of Spain, has joined the Carbon Footprint Registry, a compensation and carbon dioxide absorption project of the Spanish Office of Climate Change, which is an agency under the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, Food and Environment.
By registering in the Carbon Footprint program, the marina is certified as committed to reducing greenhouse gases released in the consumption of fuel and electricity. Carbon dioxide emissions at the marina are measured and its carbon footprint is calculated. This data is used to define the marina’s objectives and plans for reducing atmospheric pollution, according to a statement released by the marina.
As part of its environmental preservation efforts, the marina states, it provides information to each of its clients on sustainable practices, proper management of energy and water resources, good navigation and protection of the port, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
