The Green Blue has been awarded The Crown Estate’s Marine Business Award for 2011 with a prize of £5000. The marine award recognises excellence in sustainability, innovation and business performance. Nominations are drawn from coastal and marine business operations and coastal community initiatives developed with community-wide involvement.

Rob Hastings, director of the marine estate said: “The Green Blue project is the clear and outstanding winner in this competition, as it has had fantastic success in engaging with a broad range of stakeholders who seem to have almost adopted the concept to form a cultural approach to a more sustainable interaction with the sea”.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, held on 7 July at Lancaster House, London Jane Swan, The Green Blue’s Project Manager said “We’re delighted to receive this award from The Crown Estate. Not only does it recognise the impact on the UK marine leisure sector we have had over the last five years but it also acknowledges the contribution of all the organisations, whether they be marinas or clubs, that we have worked with.

“There is a real groundswell of enthusiasm for sustainability and this award and the prize money will give us a welcome boost to encourage and support more marine organisations in their efforts to be green.”

The Crown Estate Business Awards operate in each of the Crown Estate’s business areas; marine, rural and urban and aim to demonstrate its on-going commitment to encouraging the development of successful, innovative and sustainable business.
