“Marina Port Vell is deeply committed to environmental protection,” said Norma Trease, Director of Salamanca Group’s Marine Division. “Throughout the past three years, we have paid particular attention to the implementation and certification of our environmental management system, ensuring that it meets ISO 14001 and EMAS regulations. Committing to a local mandate for additional natural resource protection is an additional indication of our looking to be as green as possible,” she continued.
