2,563 km travelled and 561 kg of CO2 less in the atmosphere. These are the figures produced by the CicloGreen sustainable mobility pilot project during the month of April. Some thirty employees of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) took part in this 30-day challenge, whose main objective was to promote sustainable mobility within the organisation in an effort to reduce CO2 emissions from transport.
Employees preferred the bicycle as a means of transport, although they also walked, used public transport, carpooling or electric vehicles.
The new playground at the port of La Savina, funded by the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (PAB), is now open to the public and provides to the citizens with an area located on the promenade of the Marina next to the Formentera Mar tower.
The playground is intended for children aged 5 to 12 and includes all safety measures required in the manufacture, installation, inspection and maintenance of the park by the European standards UNE-EN 1176 and UNE-EN1177. In addition, the playground equipment chosen is built with materials resistant to marine environments.

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), together with more than fifty of its stakeholders, has started to reflect on the innovative initiatives taken by the organisation. All this has materialised today in the presentation of the port innovation ecosystem, in which the president of the APB, Francesc Antich, the director, Jorge Nasarre, and the head of the Quality, Environment, Innovation and CSR department, Jorge Martín, took part.

The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has put out to public tender the provisional cleaning of the beach of Can Pere Antoni and the slipways of Roquetas, Troneras and Can Barbarà for a period of nine months, while a definitive contract is being drawn up that will provide more services than those currently in force. This will ensure optimal maintenance of these areas during the summer season.
Baleària's first fast ferry, the Eleanor Roosevelt, was presented to the public yesterday in the ports of Palma and Eivissa.
