Environmental challenges in the Balearic Islands
One of the great challenges which has become increasingly prominent in the marine sector in recent years is the generation of waste and how to avoid it. Also, how to take care of the natural fauna and flora which surrounds the Balearics and makes it such a unique destination. Many associations and companies in the industry are carrying out activities to help the sector become as environmentally friendly as possible.
On Friday 20th November at 16:00 CET, Superyacht Group are hosting a conference on ‘How to become the Cleanest, Greenest Superyacht hub in Europe. In this talk they will suggest an action plan and strategy to make the Balearic Islands more environmentally friendly not only nationally but also in Europe.
Sustainability and green sailing are some of the most widely used terms in the marine industry today. Many companies are now choosing to design and manufacture sustainable boats, such as solar or electric. Another of the points is to reduce the pollution produced by boats, making them more environmentally friendly.
