Marina Environmental Review System: A methodology to assess environmental management in recreational ports
This paper describes the basic requirements of an Environmental Management System for recreational ports (marinas), based on well-established systems such as ISO 14001, EMAS and the PERS methodology (Port Environmental Review System) recently developed by the ECOPORTS Foundation. A novel system that can assess the performance of environmental management has been created, appropriate to the marina environment, tailor made to the needs and requirements of each marina manager, aimed at supporting recreational ports to attain international accreditation (i.e. Blue Flag). This system, including environmental assessment and monitoring, was tested with major marinas in Greece and valuable conclusions were drawn.
