MDL and the Environment

Working with our on-site businesses and members, we’re committed to harnessing and protecting the natural beauty of our marina surroundings, for the enjoyment of all.

That’s why we have a dedicated team focused on environmental issues and we heavily support charity and educational activities.


The Green Blue

We support the Green Blue, an environmental awareness campaign with the aim of educating and informing the boating community.


Native Oyster Restoration

We’re proud to be the primary supporter of the Blue Marine Foundation in its innovative conservation project to replenish the Solent’s oyster population, bringing employment opportunities and creating cleaner waters for cruising on the Solent.


Renewable Energy

All the electricity we purchase is ‘green’ energy from 100% renewable sources. This means our members benefit from clean, green energy that is produced in harmony with the environment, without depleting the earth’s natural resources or producing harmful greenhouse gases.


Oils and Fuels

We aim to supply only the highest quality fuels. To ensure we deliver on this promise, MDL fuel is regularly tested for its quality by an independent laboratory to ensure that it reaches the pump in prime condition. All MDL staff are trained in incident response procedures, both on and off the water.



We implement environmental audits and checks on a periodic basis. Recycling bins are provided and promoted at all our marina sites.


Waste Disposal

We have full recycling and waste management facilities at all of our locations, 100% of hazardous waste is recycled.
