More than a fancy flag, International Clean Marina Certification is testament to completing and passing a set of criteria developed through the Marina Industries Association, which accredit marinas globally with environmental credentials.

Southport Yacht Club (SYC) on Queensland’s Gold Coast was today accredited as a Level 3 Clean Marina.

The International Clean Marinas environmental program is administered by the Marina Industries Association (MIA). Achieving a Level 3 accreditation requires a solid commitment from participating marinas and the rigorous process includes a site inspection assessed against a 103 point checklist.

The site audit of key operational areas including inspections of mechanical activities, boat maintenance and storage, fuelling, facility management, workshop, mechanical, shipwright and boat repair, emergency planning and equipment and boater education. A written report with detailed feedback is provided to the marina.

Southport Yacht Club’s Waterfront Manager Mark Riddell said the achievement of Clean Marina accreditation was another important step in demonstrating SYC’s commitment to environmental best practice.

'As a multi-faceted Club and Marina facility it is essential all components are operating both individually and collectively at the highest level of performance. The Clean Marinas program provides us with specific criteria to assess the environmental performance of our marina operations. The Clean Marina program complements our environmental policies, plans and operations.'

MIA Director, John Hogan said in presenting the achievement,' Southport Yacht Club’s achievement is important for the marina industry as it is a high profile marina and influential in demonstrating environmental leadership to the wider community. We now have 61 marinas across Australia and internationally committed to environmental best practise. The challenge for industry remains to continually increase the number of marinas committed to achieving Clean Marinas status.'
