Encouraged by the success of past editions, the Monaco-based Union Internationale Motonautique, motor-boating’s international governing body, has launched the 2016 UIM Environmental Award and Special Mentions.

This award recognises outstanding environmental leaders, whether individuals or organisations, that have excelled in inspiration, vision, innovation, leadership and initiatives to the benefit of the environment.

The awards are open to UIM Member Federations, racing teams, boat builders, engine manufacturers, universities, research centres, scientists, NGOs, event organisers, companies and individuals, and can be won through positive and proven actions and efforts favouring the protection of the environment, which result in a reduction of carbon footprint for all types of motor-boating activities.

The 2016 UIM Environmental Award Winner and the Special Mentions will be announced early February 2017 through a press release.

The winners of the 2016 Environmental Award and Special Mentions will be invited to attend the UIM Awards Giving Gala and will be presented with a personalised trophy in the presence of 450 international guests.

The winners will also be offered the opportunity to present their projects at the UIM Gala press conference, attended by international press representatives, television, photographers and UIM TV Production. (Source:
