* [Background of acquisition] *

At Riviera, which started its marina business in 2001, we felt climate change firsthand and started environmental conservation activities. In 2006, we launched the “Riviera Future Creation Project” and are engaged in numerous activities based on the three pillars of “environment,” “education,” and “health and medical care
(well-being).”
A “recycling farming method” in which vegetable scraps from restaurants in the marina are used as combustible waste instead of being burned as compost and then served at the restaurant in the Riviera Zushi Marina, and “thin-film solar panels” installed on the marina quayside to generate electricity. In order to pass on good old things and the natural environment to the next generation, we have been steadily promoting sustainable initiatives, such as using recycled energy to power the marina, and have also focused on environmental education. In addition, from 2021, we will hold the “Riviera SDGs Festival” and “LOVE Festival” to expand the scope of the sustainable movement.
OCEAN” and “Riviera SDGs Manga Award”.

In 2022, to further commit to the environment, Riviera Zushi Marina applied for international certification, becoming the first marina in Japan to receive Blue Flag certification, the first in Asia. And this time, Riviera Sivonia Marina was also able to receive certification.

* [Future steps] *

Even after obtaining the Blue Flag, a business must meet the standards through two rigorous examinations each year: domestic examination and international examination. In addition, the examination standards become stricter each year, so constant efforts are required to continue.

Through obtaining the certification, we learned that environmental efforts along the coast have a significant impact on tourism. Blue Flag marinas are particularly well-recognized in Europe, where they have been recognized as “well-managed, safe, comfortable marinas that provide environmental education, and are environmentally beautiful marinas that everyone can enjoy.” Yes, the Blue Flag is a universal “sign of peace of mind”.
At Riviera, based on the idea of ​​“environment x tourism” that “people gather around the beautiful sea,” “LOVE OCEAN”
We believe that by proactively addressing environmental issues through this project, we can realize sustainable tourism and contribute to regional revitalization and the creation of a sustainable society. As a business owner of two world-class marinas recognized by Blue Flag, we will continue to work on environmental conservation, environmental education, and sustainable town development.
