D-Marin has been recognised for its increasing commitment to sustainability, receiving the silver award for a consecutive year by EcoVadis, the world’s most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, and improving its rank within the global leisure industry.
This achievement marks a significant improvement from D-Marin’s position in 2022, elevating D-Marin to the top 24 per cent within the leisure industry worldwide, up from 30 per cent. This advancement in sustainability rating reflects D-Marin’s unwavering dedication to implementing sustainable practices throughout its operations.
D-Marin was awarded the silver rating following a strict assessment of its sustainability practices and commitments across 21 indicators in four areas: environment, labour and human rights, business ethics, and sustainable procurement. The assessment is based on a stringent global standard of practice, with thresholds pushed further each year, making improvements to ratings increasingly difficult to achieve.
D-Marin maintains a robust Environmental Social Governance (ESG) strategy, driven by its mission to establish “sustainable marinas for todays and future generations,” which comprehensively addresses all four assessed areas.
Areti Priovolou, Health, Safety and Environmental Officer at D-Marin, said: “We are very proud to be rated in the top 24% of the global leisure industry. The standard is set higher by EcoVadis each year and we welcome the challenge this brings. Sustainability is no longer a mere concept; it is an imperative and a responsibility to ensure a sustainable world, both environmentally and ethically, for our teams, suppliers, and the communities in which we operate. We remain steadfast in our pursuit of these fundamental principles.”
Christina Samoulada, Human Resources Director at D-Marin, said: “The improvement in our Ecovadis rating is a testament to the collective efforts of our marina teams and ongoing commitment to sustainability. Aligning to make operations more sustainable is not only the right thing to do but is ingrained in our corporate DNA. We continually strive for improvement, demonstrating our commitment to environmental responsibility and community wellbeing.”
