Karpaz Gate Marina, the exclusive international-standard marina nestled in North Cyprus, has been awarded the esteemed title of the Sustainable Smart Marina at the prestigious Monaco Sustainable & Smart Marina Rendezvous event earlier this week (25th September 2023)
Hosted at the distinguished Monaco Yacht Club, the event, a gathering of nearly 250 influential figures from the marine industry, recognised Karpaz Gate Marina’s unwavering commitment to sustainability and innovation—a core ethos since its inauguration in 2011. This prestigious accolade highlights the marina’s pledge to reduce its environmental footprint while delivering exceptional services to patrons and berth holders.
The Monaco Sustainable & Smart Marina Rendezvous has earned its reputation as an arena for industry experts to foster innovation, exchange knowledge and promote and nurture sustainable practices within the marine sector. Liza Singer, the Managing Director of Karpaz Gate Marina, presented the marina resort’s commitment and passion for sustainability and smart marina management—a philosophy cultivated from the ground up at this unique destination. Singer also shared her forward-looking environmental initiatives, tailored to the broader community.
Singer expressed her appreciation for this recognition, stating, “ “We are truly honoured to receive the Sustainable Smart Marina award at the Monaco Sustainable & Smart Marina Rendezvous 2023.
This achievement encompasses the various aspects of our efforts during the years of developing and operating our Marina and underscores our ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship and innovative solutions in the marina industry and within our local environment. We truly believe in ‘making a difference’ with the different aspects of our operation, and in creating a sustainable and eco-friendly marina while providing top-quality services to our customers. This will continue to be at the very heart of our operations. We will always seek to lead with sustainable innovations and break down barriers to find solutions to support our continued commitment and development not only for us and our clients but also for the whole community in developing North Cyprus as a region and caring for its surrounding land and sea.”
Karpaz Gate Marina shares this prestigious accolade with Limassol Marina in the Republic of Cyprus. The Monaco Sustainable & Smart Marina Rendezvous and its awards emphasise the significance of sustainable practices within the maritime sector and reinforce the pivotal role marinas play in steering these efforts. Karpaz Gate Marina’s role as ‘gatekeepers of the sea’ in upholding these principles impeccably aligns with the event’s objectives, further solidifying the marina’s pioneering status in sustainable smart marina management.
