Marbella's famous Cívitas Puerto Banús port has been recognised as one of the most sustainable marinas in the country.

In a recent study, the Sustainability Observatory selected the 10 most important ports in Spain, with more than 7,000 moorings. All of them are located in the Mediterranean, the coast with the most demand.

The two Malaga province ports selected were Puerto Deportivo de Estepona and Cívitas Puerto Banús, while across the rest of the country, Puerto Sotogrande (Cadiz), Marina de Valencia, Marina Port Ibiza, Marina Ibiza, Port Adriano (Mallorca), Puerto Portals (Mallorca), Real Club Náutico de Palma and Marina Port Vell (Barcelona) were chosen.

The study then determined which are the ports that show the greatest commitment to sustainability and in what way they implement actions to comply with the sustainable development goals agreed by the United Nations in its Agenda 2030.

Cívitas Puerto Banús was deemed the most outstanding marina for its achievements in direct conservation of endangered species of marine biodiversity, such as the ferruginous limpet or the existence of other aquatic mammals. Cívitas Puerto Banús also showed impressive progress in achieving all of the UN's sustainable development goals, according to the study.

Among the environmental actions planned in the coming weeks by Cívitas Puerto Banús, is a day dedicated to reforesting part of an urban forest within the Sierra de Mijas on 4 November. "Bringing this affected area back to life is part of our commitment to the planet, to our environment, to our province and to the fulfilment of the sustainable development goals that we have been implementing for more than four years," said Benjamín Sánchez Morett, head of the marina's sustainability and environment committee.
