ONE15 Marina Club, an exclusive waterfront destination in Singapore, has been awarded the ‘Green Maritime Company of the Year’ at the 11th edition of the Asia Boating Awards, held on 1st May 2015.
The award, established by the Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating magazines in 2005, is an annual event that recognises leisure marina businesses in Asia and internationally that have contributed to the protection of the environment.
This year, the awards saw nearly 200 industry leaders and VIPs from around the world as the event began with a range of Snow Leopard cocktails, followed by a five-course dinner with Torres wine pairings, and the presentation of prestigious Baccarat crystal trophies.
Brian E. Werner, general manager of ONE15 Marina Club commented, “We are thrilled to have achieved such high recognition for our efforts to protect the environment. This is a testament to ONE15’s eco-friendly practices and initiatives, and we will continue to display exemplary environmental stewardship for future generations to enjoy a cleaner earth.”
Besides its recent win, ONE15 Marina Club was also the first region to achieve the internationally recognised certification for Environment Management, the ISO 14001, in 2007. This standard ensures consumers that products and services offered by the club have the lowest possible environmental impact, complying with all environmental laws, regulations and other requirements. For example, pontoons around the club's marina are made from composite wood, a fully sustainable resource made from reclaimed wood and polymer, as opposed to timber.
Furthermore, the club has put an environmental policy in place to operate a clean and sustainable marina with minimal pollution and waste, and an eco-initiative, named ‘Project Perna’, which involved the breeding of mussels under the marina pontoon.
ONE15 Marina Club marina accommodates 270 berths for yachts and superyachts of up to 61 metres.
