The Azimut Benetti Group was honored for promoting a culture of environmental safety in the workplace at the UIM Environmental Award 2013, sponsored by the Union Internationale Motonautique, the international governing body of powerboating.

The event was held Saturday at the Salle des Etoiles of Le Sporting Monte Carlo complex in Monaco. Columbus Yachts won the Environmental Award for its 40S Hybrid.

The UIM’s goal is to promote excellence in the innovation, development and application of environmentally friendly technologies. Azimut Benetti received a special mention for environmental benefits.

The group was honored, in particular, for the BS OHSAS 18001 certification it obtained in December. OHSAS 18001 is a British standard for occupational health and safety management systems.

Azimut Benetti said it was the only shipyard in the world that has achieved the certification for its six production sites: Avigliana, Savona, Varazze, Viareggio, Livorno and Fano.
