A healthy and beautiful marine environment is critical to a strong marine industry, and Clean Marine BC helps protect our cruising waters for generations to come. The benefits of Clean Marine BC certification are many, and we work hard for our marinas, harbour authorities, boatyards, and yacht clubs to provide the highest possible value and recognition for your environmental best practices.
- Upon certification, you will receive the coveted Clean Marine BC flag, signage, and the right to use the CMBC logo in your promotional materials.
- Clean Marine BC offers spill response training.
- Clean Marine BC facilities have access to the consultative support services of our award winning Green Boating team.
- Your facility will also be promoted as a Clean Marine BC certified facility, which includes listing on our website, and promotion at boat shows, in boating magazines, social media, press releases, presentations and conferences, Georgia Strait Alliance newsletters and more!
Here’s an excellent example in Pacific Yachting.
