Green Club, Centre and Association Guidance
With over 2,400 recognised Training Centres and 1,500 affiliated clubs and classes it is fair to say that participation in water-sports is as popular as ever.
As clubs and training centres we play a crucial role in raising awareness and educating both younger and older boat users in the best practice that can be adopted to minimise any impacts on the waters, wildlife and habitats we rely on for your enjoyment, wellbeing and livelihoods.
WHY GO GREEN?
We all like to experience clean seas, lakes and rivers, so it’s in all our interests to do what we can to minimise our impact on the environment for today and for future generations.
The next most pressing reasons to go green include:
- To comply with environmental legislation – keeping your club or centre on the right side of the law
- To save money – by managing your facilities more efficiently huge savings can be made
- To meet expectations – environmental awareness is now a hot topic and your existing and potential members may expect you to have measures in place
- To lead by example – shout about the positive changes you are making to have a wider influence
