A Blue Flag raising ceremony was held in ACI Marina Skradin, which was appropriately marked by a day-long sea clean-up operation in which ACI Marina employees, members of the Croatian Diving Association and numerous volunteers took part. Thanks to their involvement, the seabed was relieved of a significant amount of waste.

Blue flags additionally testify to the dedication of the company ACI dd to the preservation of the cleanliness of the sea and the undersea, since they represent the most recognized model of environmental education, education and public information. The ceremony itself was attended by representatives of local and regional authorities, as well as representatives of important national institutions and organizations.

"As a leading company in the nautical industry, not only in Croatia, but also in the entire Mediterranean, we feel a great responsibility towards society. Accordingly, our sea and underwater cleaning actions are aimed at removing significant amounts of waste in order to ensure a cleaner and greener environment for future generations The blue flags, which fly proudly in all our year-round marinas, are a confirmation of our responsible management of marine resources, the sea and the environment., he pointed out Slaven Bogut, director of ACI marina Skradin.

ACI marinas have been proudly carrying Blue Flags for more than 20 years, which is proof of the company's continued commitment to environmental protection and sustainable business. After the welcoming speeches of the hosts and guests, a short presentation by the Lijepa Naša Association was held on the topic "Blue Flag" with a simultaneous ceremonial awarding of Blue Flag winners. Then Toni Komić from the company NatureSafe, Silvija Kovačić from Udruga Sonda and Darko Beljan from the company Durmax presented their ecological products. 

This was followed by the ceremonial raising of the Blue Flag in the Skradin ACI marina, accompanied by a trumpeter from the Skradin Town Music and several musical acts, while the whole event was surrounded by a humanitarian note. After the ceremony, DVD Skradin performed the line-up, and the companies Istion and Global Yachting donated firefighting equipment for the new firefighting season. The specificity of the Skradin green oasis lies in the fact that it is the only point in Šibenik-Knin County that has been spared from fires in the last few years. 

The ceremonial raising of the Blue Flag was attended by many distinguished guests, including prof. Antonija Brajković, the mayor of Skradin, Slaven Bogut, director of ACI marina Skradin, Nediljko Dujić, President of the Board of Croatian Forests, prof. Ph.D. Mirko Ruscic, president of the Lijepa Naša Association, and representatives of the Public Institution Priroda Šibenik-Knin County.

The regular cleaning campaigns that ACI, as the largest chain of marinas in the Mediterranean, carries out in its marinas along the Adriatic coast have resulted in numerous Blue Flags awarded by Udruga Lijepa Naša under the auspices of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

This award, which must be renewed every year, is awarded to marinas that meet strict criteria in the areas of environmental education, public information, water quality, environmental management, and safety and service quality. The first half of this year was marked by environmental actions held in the ACI marinas of Vodice, Milna and Šimuni, and in the coming period, other marinas of the system will participate in the preservation of natural resources.

Through partnerships with local authorities, civil society organizations and institutions, ACI dd demonstrates an example of sustainable business that respects the environment and contributes to the well-being of the community. This initiative emphasizes the importance of continuous efforts to protect natural resources for future generations and calls for greater engagement and cooperation of all stakeholders in society in achieving this common goal.
