Premier Marinas heads towards net zero

Premier Marinas has been awarded ISO 14064-1:2018 certification for the verification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The company has had the carbon output across its business measured and independently verified – marking a significant step towards its target of zero greenhouse gas emissions from Premier occupied facilities by 2030.

The certification completes a hat trick of ISO standards for Premier, being certified ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management since 2018 and ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety since 2019.

“We strive to ensure sustainability is at the heart of our business,” said Pete Bradshaw, Premier Marinas CEO. “This latest achievement shows how seriously we take our responsibility to the environment and our progress to become net zero.”

The quantifying and reporting of Premier’s GHG emissions scrutinised all sites, all operations and all business activity with all emissions benchmarked.

In addition, the carbon footprint from all electricity consumption across Premier Marinas’ ten sites, including electricity consumption from any onsite commercial tenants plus any electricity consumed by people using their boats in the marinas is assessed.

Emissions from gas use (for heating or hot water) as well as that from onboard gas cylinders are also calculated.

Almost all Premier sites have now made the switch to using hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) in plant and machinery, which can lead to a 90% reduction in GHG emissions.

Also taken into account, is the carbon resulting from Premier Marinas’ employees commuting to work plus any business travel.

In addition, Premier has carried out solar PV installation across all feasible facility buildings, which generates around 550,000 kWh.
