Gardone Riviera: blue flag for environmental excellence for the fourth time running

26 May 2014

Since 1985 the blue flag is awarded by the European environmental foundation FEE for excellent performance in environmental work. Gardone Riviera has now been awarded the blue flag for the fourth time running. Already since 2010 this renowned lakeside resort on Lake Garda can boast this visible symbol for its water quality, its considerate treatment of nature and its commitment to the protection of the environment.

The blue flag is the first international symbol for the environment, which is awarded each year for bathing areas and marinas in a total of 51 countries all over the world. The assessment of beaches and harbours is effected all over Europe according to the same criteria such as water quality, management of the environment (e.g. waste management) and environmental communication. During the season it is possible that there will be checks on a random basis as to whether these criteria are being followed.
