D-Marin, the selection of premium marinas, uses its award-winning Environmental Social Governance (ESG) experience to prioritise sustainability in its three newly acquired marinas – Marina Estepona, Marina Duquesa and Marina del Este – in Andalucia, Spain.
In line with the commitment to sustainability and marine life enhancement, D-Marin has outlined comprehensive plans to improve the sustainability in the Costa del Sol region by investing in solar panels installation, pump stations to safely collect and manage waste, used oil collection tanks, recycling initiatives, treatment systems to remove suspended particles and heavy metals from the water, alongside monthly water quality testing.
Beyond environmental initiatives, D-Marin will integrate each marina closely with the local community, by considering the local needs of boaters, fishermen, businesses and restaurants, expanding employment opportunities and playing an active role in important regional discussions and conferences, including the 2023 Sun&Blue congress on Blue Tourism Innovation.
Konrad Tyrajski, COO at D-Marin, said: “Through our scale, we have the means to innovate and create premium marinas with highest standards of ESG and customer experience across the Mediterranean and beyond. Within our new Spanish marinas for example, we have investment plans in place to provide solar panels which will cover 100% of our energy consumption.”
D Marin believes in a structured approach in improving ESG and has received awards for its environmentally friendly practices. EcoVadis, the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, ranks D-Marin in the top 24 percent of companies in the leisure industry. All its marinas have also received the Blue Flag award for water quality, environmental management, environmental education, and safety.
