Project Detail

A word from the port
The protection of the environment is one of the priorities of the Monegasque State’s policy and numerous actions are being carried out in particular in the context of taking into account biodiversity and resource management. It is therefore quite natural that the Directorate of Maritime Affairs (DAM), the Directorate of the Environment (DE) and the Société d’Exploitation des Ports de Monaco (SEPM) are involved in the NAPPEX project. This project is also part of the extension of the European “Clean Ports” certification, awarded by AFNOR, obtained by SEPM in September 2011.
Since 2002, SEPM has been carrying out a number of actions in favour of the environment, such as the implementation of a grey and black water recovery policy, the obligation for users to use environmentally friendly products, the cleaning of the water body guaranteed on a permanent basis by a team dedicated to this mission, and the setting up of containers for specific waste (batteries, oil, etc.).
As part of the restoration of the Principality’s waters to a good ecological state, and in particular the ports, artificial habitats have been installed on the quayside and on pontoons in Monaco’s two existing ports. These ports are favourably positioned in the ecosystem (rocky coastline, proximity to marine protected areas, good water quality, etc.) and thus contribute to improving biodiversity in their environment.
In addition, the shells used to fill the steel cages come from the “Les Perles de Monaco” hatchery and are collected from the Principality’s restaurants, which allows for local and innovative waste treatment.
