Green Pennant

In 2015 Jachthaven De Boarnstream as 1st Frisian Marina, has been awarded with the Green Pennant! 

On the initiative of several Blue Flag Marinas there has been added a number of critera, in the field of sustainable and socially responsible enterprise, to the international demands of the Blue Flag. These criteria are taken from the quality lable Green Key for the hospitality sector ( These criteria apply a wide area, such as sustainable purchase, the use of sustainable (construction) materials, saving energy, cleaning liquids, saving water, social engagement, green management, transport and supply chain liability. 

An independent inspector of the Blue Flag is examining the above mentioned criteria scrupulously. The conclusion is by the national jury of the Blue Flag Netherlands evaluated and the result is a Green Pennant above the Blue Flag 2015.

Wies Hokwerda of Jachthaven De Boarnstream is very pleased with this extra rating. ‘Socially responsible enterprise has always high priority and we already pay a lot of attention to the environment. With those extra standards in the field of sustainable purchase, saving water, personnel management and green management we are enhancing sustainability even more’.
