Sailing is often associated with adventure, luxury, and escape from the daily grind. But what if it could also be a means to a better future? Quadrant Sailing Charters is proud to announce its strong commitment to the United Nations-approved Agenda 2030, which includes 17 objectives for sustainable development. This is not just a business decision, but a moral obligation to preserve our planet and secure a better future for generations to come.
A Roadmap for Sustainable Development The 2030 Agenda, adopted by the United Nations in 2015, outlines 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aimed at ending poverty, protecting the planet, and ensuring peace and prosperity for all. These goals cover a wide range of issues such as health, education, gender equality, clean energy, and sustainable cities, among others. Quadrant Sailing Charters is committed to contributing to these efforts through its operations, partnerships, and outreach programs.
Tourism is required to contribute directly or indirectly to all its objectives, specifically objectives 8 (growth of the sustainable economy), 12 (responsible consummation and production), and 14 (sustainable use of the oceans and the marine environment). Portugal with its Tourism Strategy 2027 is also based on social and environmental development throughout its territory, placing Portugal as one of the most competitive and sustainable tourist destinations in the world. The 2020-2030 Tourism + Sustainable Plan the latest involvement of Turismo de Portugal to the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and the Portuguese Pact for Plastics, establish strong partnerships that reflect the commitment to reinforce the role of Tourism in Portugal, building a better world for everyone. The majority of products onboard are nationally sourced if not locally, preferably through the supply from smaller sustainable producers working within the same ecological vision.
