New Sustainability Initiatives by Porto Montenegro

Porto Montenegro; designed by yachting professionals, is the industry leading multi-award-winning Superyacht homeport marina, with services, facilities, and amenities that exceed the needs and high standards expected of our industry.

Located in Boka Bay, one of the world’s largest natural harbours in the Eastern Mediterranean, Porto Montenegro Marina has always been focused on sustainable initiatives, from reducing carbon footprint to preserving nature. The marina sector of Porto Montenegro is ideally positioned to promote environmental best practices.

“Porto Montenegro; designed by yachting professionals, is the industry leading multi-award-winning Superyacht homeport marina, with services, facilities, and amenities that exceed the needs and high standards expected of our industry. Therefore, we are immensely proud of our unpreceded dedication to innovative sustainability marine practices and are continually pioneering best practices in our sector to protect our beautiful location for future generations to come” – Tony Browne, Marina Director, Porto Montenegro.

Porto Montenegro’s ongoing partnership with Adriatic Marinas and the Institute of Marina Biology, committed to creating a green future together are implementing an exciting new project, SHAREMED, at the marina which aims to increase the capacity of Mediterranean regional, subregional and local authorities and the scientific community to jointly assess, and address hazards related to pollution and environmental threats in Mediterranean waters.

The marinas built-in infrastructure is dedicated to environmentally conscious systems; a grey and black water-pump out system available on all berths over 20m free of charge, paper press on site for cardboard and paper ensures efficient transportation to recycling plants alongside a hazardous waste collection service with Government approved methods.

In addition, the sole use of reusable glass water bottles throughout refilled from large sustainable quantities of drinking water ensure that single-use plastic is severely reduced. Reducing the marina’s carbon footprint for example, with the use of solar panels to heat water on a number of service blocks to operating electric vehicles within the marina help keep omissions low.

Porto Montenegro has always done it’s best to help the surrounding waters as the pioneer of the Seabin project in 2016, which proved to be highly successful in removing floating rubbish from the marina waters.
