Social Responsibility & Circular Economy Project

As an entity responsible for the impacts that our decisions and activities cause in our society and in the ecosystem of our environment, in Port Adriano we have committed ourselves to contribute to the sustainable development of our area and to the well-being of the community that surrounds us through transparent and ethical environmental behaviour.

Since 2004 we have been certified internationally according to the ISO 9001 and 14001 standards, and in 2009 we were certified by EMAS, a European certificate that requires the most demanding standards of good environmental practices and legislative compliance, in addition to providing recognition that represents a commitment to continuous improvement for the benefit of our partners, users and our environment. The situation of the current pandemic has led us to assume our responsibility and to certify the Marina with the „Safe Tourism“ seal, as a guarantee for our visitors, workers and clients regarding the measures we have in place to ensure your health and safety.

This commitment and responsibility has led us to launch in this year 2020 a pioneering Project of Circular Economy in the marine industry of the Balearic Islands, linked to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (SDG Agenda 2030).

This Circular Economy Project aims to work as a lever to maximize the use of resources, minimize the generation of unusable waste and prevent pollution of the sea, combining environmental, economic and social.

Within the social framework, our organization works with the community, promoting information about the environment through educational activities aimed at children, collaborating with non-governmental organizations to help increase information and recycling of waste among port users and supporting charitable causes linked to the welfare and development of children and society.

    2. Dissemination of teaching materials based on environmental education and sustainability.
    3. Active maintenance of a system of assistance to endangered marine species, which focuses especially on the recovery and treatment of sea turtles.

The exhibition has been made with plastic bottles, carafes, detergent containers… all collected from our seas, or made with 100% recycled and ecological materials, including paints.
