LSC Environmental Policy

As a club that has the privilege of spanning two harbours, Langstone Sailing Club understands the importance of our local environment and our role in helping to protect and preserve our waters and shoreline. We recognise we need to do what we can to reduce the impact we have to preserve our marine environment for future generations.

To achieve this we will:

  • Meet all environmental legislation that relates to the running of our clubhouse and sailing activities, and where possible, identify opportunities to adopt best practise over and above minimum legislative requirements.
  • Minimise our use of energy through improved efficiency and encourage energy saving behaviours.
  • Minimise the use of water through improved efficiency and avoiding unnecessary waste, particularly when cleaning boats.
  • Manage all waste generated by the Club through a hierarchy of reduce, re-use and recycle, before disposing of waste appropriately and responsibly.
  • Ensure we continuously manage all pollution risks that result from club activities including; use of antifouling on yachts, refuelling of safety boats and storage of hazardous materials.
  • Promote sustainability in our events and regattas by following the RYA guidance on running greener events.
  • Promote our environmental commitment to members and visitors and encourage sustainable behaviours.
  • Ensure we include environmental criteria in refurbishment planning so that any future developments meet our Environmental Goals.
  • Consider the environmental credentials of our suppliers when procuring products, with the aim of encouraging other organisations to integrate sustainability into their operations.
  • Actively engage with Langstone Harbour board, Chichester Harbour Conservancy, our local community, and other Langstone and Chichester Harbour sailing clubs, working together to protect our unique Harbour environments.
  • Measure our progress and report on and review this policy annually.
