participate in the blue flag programme
A world-renowned eco-label trusted by millions around the globe, the Blue Flag programme is operated under the auspices of the Foundation for Environmental Education and is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. In order to qualify for this prestigious award, a series of stringent environmental, educational, safety- and access-related criteria must be met and maintained. Through close collaboration with our members on any and all issues they may have, the Foundation for Environmental Education works tirelessly to ensure the programmes' expansion, and that the unrivaled standards of the Blue Flag are maintained internationally.
Blue Flag advantages
The advantages of the Blue Flag programme are many and varied: from the primary objectives of environmental protection and and education for sustainable development, to the financial rewards such accreditation brings in the form of more visitors looking for a higher level of environmental responsibility, the Blue Flag is a trusted symbol the world over.
Some of the benefits include:
An opportunity for the region to capitalise on this reputation for environmental protection and market itself as such a destination.
A higher standard of environment for local people and the associated health benefits.
A better quality of environment which gives visitors to your beaches, marinas and boats a superior experience, thereby increasing their profile.
Protection of the local environment from the destabilising effects of unmanaged practices.
