ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCTS & INITIATIVES Pilot phase marina: Marina di Pescara. A: The seven areas were selected following a survey carried out by Assonat. They were deemed “critical” by most marinas who contributed and, as such, they are perceived as equally important because they respond to real needs. The measurement and certification of a marina’s carbon footprint in line with ISO 14064:2019 and the possibility of first reducing and then offsetting it, together with the certification of ESG indicators in line with the main international standards of non-financial reporting, however, are the two aspects that have aroused greatest interest. Q: How are local authorities welcoming the initiative? A: We anticipate sharing the project results with local public administration in order to raise awareness and provide information on the importance of inserting appropriate and effective sustainability requirements when assigning state-owned concessions. The central public administration has, however, been involved from the early stages of the project. The Higher Institute for Environmental protection (ISPRA) of the Ministry of Ecological Transition and the General Command of the Port Authorities showed great interest in and support of the Porto Sostenibile standard as an initiative that favours social cohesion and safeguards territories where certified tourist ports are present. This is the precise reason why the mandatory and preparatory Porto Sostenibile training course for marinas interested in adopting the standard has been accredited by the ISPRA Ecolabel and Ecoaudit Committee, which plays a supervisory and monitoring role in the training process and results.
