The environment has the wind in the sails for pleasure boaters !

The 2017 Green Flag Operation was a great success: more than 1600 pleasure boaters were educated about the environment during summer in the 5 ports of the Riviera Ports network, signifying an increase of 56% over 2016.


It should be noted that this year Port Vauban joined this awareness-raising process.


Since 2009, the French Riviera Chamber of Commerce Ports Authority has been organising its teams, in particular the seasonal workers, to promote good practice concerning the environment during summer, when the ports are at their busiest.


This year, the Green Flag Operation consisted of the following:


  • Pleasure boaters who agreed to participate received a commitment card, which detailed correct actions in relation to the port environment.
  • A pamphlet describing the port’s ‘environmental’ services was given to pleasure boaters (waste disposal points and waste sorting, rental of or access to electric bicycles, wastewater pump-out …).
  • In return for their participation, pleasure boaters received a gift bag containing natural and easily biodegradable cleaning products, absorbents …).


Thank you to everyone, and until next year!
