In a historic move, Royal Phuket Marina (RPM) has been crowned Thailand’s top sustainable marina, securing a revered endorsement from the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO). This nod fortifies its reputation within the national maritime realm and accentuates its global pledge to revolutionize the marina industry as the planet’s premier carbon-neutral hub.
Positioned as Thailand’s and Phuket’s solitary marina, RPM, renowned for its expansive hospitality and real estate prowess, has been bestowed the distinguished Carbon Footprint for Organization (CFO) accolade. Certification of such magnitude is the hallmark of the Thai government’s commitment to curbing greenhouse emissions, and it is only bequeathed after meticulous scrutiny of an institution’s environmental footprint. The rigorous authentication process is governed by international standards, strictly adhering to protocols by the International Accreditation Forum. Additionally, it receives the sanctity of Thailand’s supreme accreditation body – the National Standardization Council of Thailand.
Speaking on this landmark achievement, the vision-driven Chairman of Royal Phuket Marina, Mr Gulu Lalvani, remarked, “Acquiring this prestigious CFO certification from the government is a testament to our unwavering commitment to sustainability. It cements our dedication to remaining at the forefront as Asia’s unmatched sustainable yachting haven. Our mission isn’t just about setting benchmarks and fostering a lifestyle that harmonizes with nature, amplifying the allure of marina living.”
RPM’s audacious vision extends beyond certifications. Their holistic approach to sustainability and innovation pervades every facet of their operations. From the meticulous design of its residential and commercial establishments to the impeccable quality of its boating facilities, the marina is ceaselessly pushing boundaries. This resonating ethos hasn’t gone unnoticed, as RPM’s groundbreaking sustainability endeavours have garnered a nomination for an esteemed ESG award by the Netherlands-Thai Chamber of Commerce (NTCC).
Indeed, as Royal Phuket Marina advances confidently on its path, it is not just sculpting its legacy but also heralding a brighter, sustainable future for the marina industry worldwide.
