START / PORT /
The marine environment where our daily activities are carried out is particularly sensitive to the actions of its users. The protection of this environment has to be the main axis of our action.
In recent years both sailboats and motorboats sailing along the coast which are based on our port have considerably increased. The risk of pollution has increased in proportion to the dramatic increase in sailing amateurs.
Our Sports Club is sensitized since many years ago with the current environmental issues and has been involved in the short term, with departments of the Catalan Government related to such issue, in setting up a plan whose ultimate purpose is the environmental protection of our port and its environment, adjusting to the ISO 14001 and EMAS.
The Club Náutico El Balis has obtained through the SGS, the ISO 9001 and 14001 certifications.
The ISO 9001 quality system provides the Club and its services a steady development in their daily work management through a process of continuous improvement.
The certification of Environmental Management ISO 14001, which has a broad framework for recognition in all business and administrative areas, is based on a horizon of voluntary action of environmental conservation measures and compilation, as well as aspects of energy saving, conservation of the marine environment and adequate monitoring in the elimination of waste. Altogether with the focus on laying the foundations for a continuous improvement in daily actions and in reducing environmental risks.
These certifications along with the obtaining of the Blue Flag have meant a source of pride for the Club, which is aware that these awards will clearly benefit all members.
The Club Náutico El Balís has received this year, once again, the blue flag that recognizes the neatness, security, natural environment and respect it shows towards the seabed, by the Association of Environmental Education and of the Consumer (ADEAC).
The badge once again shows how hard the Club works to take care of the facilities and the environment.
The badge of Blue Flags is awarded by an international court of the FEE (Environmental Education Foundation), with the collaboration of the ADEAC (Association of Environmental Education and of the Consumer).
The award the CN El Balís has been distinguished with is an acknowledgment of international scope.
These basic rules can guide you in your daily actions for a perfectly ecological navigation.
