Five Anchor Award for Thornbury Harbour

Recently, The Blue Mountains proudly announced that the Thornbury Harbour received a Five Anchor Award for its eco-efficiency performance.

According to the Yacht Harbour Association website,  gold anchor awards ranging from 3 to 5 gold anchors are designed to encourage better marina standards and are awarded annually through-out the world.

The Thornbury facility was evaluated in May 2005 by Green Leaf Environmental Communications Inc. and was awarded two Green Leaf Anchors.  The Town then made significant improvements over a three- year period and following a second review, received the Five Green Leaf Anchor Award.  The award was given based on a stringent eco-rating checklist, which included a review of environment management and policies, water quality and habitat preservation, hazardous substance handling, conservation, energy efficiency and waste reduction. 

Mayor Ellen Anderson stated, “We are constantly working towards becoming more sustainable and I am thrilled that we have received this rating.  It is a clear message that we are committed to improving our environment.”

Good work folks.  You are on the right track.  Or should I say, the right ship.
