  • To promote participation by all staff and users in the protection of the coastal environment through training and awareness raising, insisting on information and communications at all levels.

  • To take technological improvements available on the market into account when defining improvement targets and to achieve efficient, responsible and top-quality services, including services provided by concession holders.

  • To establish tools for improvement to approach the risks and opportunities of the organisation, and to achieve continuous improvements to the efficiency of the management system and environmental performance of the organisation.

  • To prevent pollution by minimising environmental risks arising from the environmental aspects of the organisation from the point of view of life cycles, taking correct management of waste generated on the beaches and the sustainable use of resources especially into account.
