ports propresSince it began operating the ports in 2006, SEPM has led numerous environmental initiatives in the aim of reducing pollution, irrespective of its cause.

Below are some of the main examples:

- Cleanliness of the stretch of water is guaranteed on a permanent basis via a contract with Société Monégasque d'Assainissement.
- Staff training in the fight against pollution.
- Provision of toilets and showers to users.
- Implementation of an ambitious recovery policy of grey and black water.
- Obligation to use environmentally friendly products.
- Refuse collection up to three times per day in the port area.
- Installation of containers for batteries, used oil, and for oil and fuel filters.
- Reduction policy of energy and water consumption.
- Declaration form for disposing of refuse in the ports of Monaco.

Yet environmental matters concern the daily lives of each and every one of us. The success of this project lies in the hands of amateur and professional sailors and port authorities alike. Without public awareness of these issues, the extremely fragile marine and coastal environment cannot be conserved. Rewarded for its actions and efforts in terms of Biodiversity and protection of the terrestrial and marine environment, in 2020 our company obtained the certification PORT PROPRE Actif en Biodiversité. This success is the result of various actions undertaken with the ECOCEAN Company for the installation of Biohut nurseries under the pontoons of the ports of Hercules and Fontvieille, as well as with the Environment Department for the preservation and enhancement of the wild area of the Fontvieille cliffs and the implementation of artificial reefs in Monegasque waters. The recent acquisition of two DPOLS donated by the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation will support the SEPM's environmental team and improve the fight against macro-waste pollution in our ports. We are really counting on the responsibility of all our staff and partners, as well as on the awareness of all port users, captains, crews and ship owners.
