Marina Port Vell (MPV), Barcelona announced that it is has formally signed the “Acords Voluntaris” initiative developed by the Climàtic Canvi Catalan Office of the Generalitat de Catalunya. The initiative is designed to reduce greenhouse gases through measuring and taking inventory of emissions, implementing measures to reduce CO2 discharge and to continually monitor the effectiveness of the program.

“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.

The Climàtic Canvi’s initiative requires accountability beyond what legal or regulatory statutes require. Within its advanced environmental technologies, Marina Port Vell will also monitor fossil fuel and electricity consumption.
