The Green Blue
The programme focuses on several areas of potential impact: oil and fuel; anti-fouling and marine paints; waste management; resource efficiency; and effects on wildlife. Initiatives include a collaborative approach to cleaning up Bristol’s historic floating harbour, an enclosed freshwater environment fed by two rivers. Improving water quality in the harbour is a key aspect of the campaign.
It involves the installation of four new pump-out facilities, awareness raising among the boating community on waste-water disposal and the launch of a certification scheme for those who do so in an environmentally acceptable way.
