Sailing is dependent on the environment and by following a few simple rules of conduct when sailing we can ensure our sport has no negative impact on the environment.
Through the very environment in which we practise our sport, sailors are already very environmentally aware and ISAF's has the following objectives to respect and safeguard our environment:
- Develop and implement an environmental programme for the sport and events
- Increase and develop awareness of environmental issues amongst all sailing stakeholders
- Support the development of Olympic Games and ISAF event venues that are sustainable for the environment, economy and community
- Position sailing as environmentally aware
