Sustainable Success Stories: How Our Clients Are Leading the Way

‘Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’ is the definition of sustainability according to the 1987 United Nations’ Brundtland Report. Oceans play a vital role in climate regulation, biodiversity, food security and livelihoods, transportation, and trade as well as tourism; incorporating all three key dimensions of sustainability: economic, social and environmental. Therefore, with the ocean being the natural resource relied entirely upon by the marine and maritime industries, it is crucial to monitor their impact on the ocean in contributing to global emissions, marine pollution, and climate change. Saltwater Stone is proud to represent clients who are actively working on sustainable solutions alongside meeting decarbonisation targets, and we want to shine the spotlight on some of them and the amazing work they do.

Karpaz Gate MarinaKarpaz Gate Marina is a marina resort based in North Cyprus. As a new marina which opened in 2011, the development had the opportunity from the outset to incorporate the most sustainable smart and innovative practices within its infrastructure to preserve the local environment and provide jobs for the local Cypriot community. Furthermore, with nature being one of the key attractions and sources of tourism in the unspoiled North Cyprus region, they continuously educate their visitors about proper waste management and behaviour practices in respecting the local environment.

Peters & MayGlobal yacht transport provider, Peters & May, announced last year its commitment to achieving net zero emissions, working with the internationally recognised Planet Mark sustainability certification.

Whilst global marine transport is considered one of the most economical and environmentally friendly modes of transport, it is important to consider the detrimental impact it can have on the environment. Peters & May are aware of this and with the support of Planet Mark and its firm standards, the company are not only reviewing all its internal carbon footprint activities but are also optimising processes throughout its upwards and downwards supply chain.

Peters & May endeavours to radically reduce its contribution to greenhouse emissions.

Vetus’ commitment to sustainable boating has had a strong impact on their R&D endeavours and they have developed two complete electric propulsion systems, the E-LINE and E-POD in response to the industry’s move towards emission-free electrification. Both systems have ‘active motor braking’, combining the silence of a sailing boat with the total control and manoeuvrability of a motorboat.
