Environmental Policy

Code of Environmental Friendly Behaviour
Salty Miles recognizes that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods.
RESPONSIBILITY

POLICY AIMS

We endeavor to:
  • Comply with all relevant regulatory requirements.
  • Continually improve and monitor environmental performance.
  • Continually improve and reduce environmental impacts.
  • Increase employee and clients awareness through the partnership with Green Sail and World Sailing Sustainable Education Programme.
  • Developing partnerships and projects with other organizations, trusts, charities and businesses.

GARBAGE

We will:
  • Never throw any waste over the side.
  • Reduce the amount of waste. For example, removing a package before we take things on board or buying food without a package.
  • Re-use whatever we can. For example, refilling plastic drink bottles.

PAPER

We will:
  • Use email rather than printed materials to communicate and promote our activities where it's possible.
  • Minimize the creation of waste. We will only print and photocopy if absolutely essential and then print double-sided.
  • Recycle as much waste as possible by providing an adequate clearly labeled bin.

ENERGY AND WATER

We will seek to:
  • Increase employee and clients awareness about the necessity of great attention while refueling.
  • Ensure that our boats are fueled safely and responsibly to avoid spillages and pollution. Regularly check and maintain our fleet engines to avoid any leaks.
  • Always use containers made for holding oil and fuel.
  • Use absorbent spill mats to absorb the oil and fuel.
  • When filling a small outboard from a jerry can, you can use a special nozzle, which prevents overfilling.
  • Minimize the use of water in all of our activities, we will turn off taps when not in use, take shower shortly and use a water maker.

OFFICE SUPPLIES

We will:
  • Minimize the use of electricity in all of our activities. For example, we are replacing old light bulbs with energy efficient models and using air conditioning as little as possible.
