Yacht Carbon Offset is a specialised environmental service company with a mission to reduce the net environmental impact of the superyacht industry. We provide a tailored carbon offset service that counteracts the carbon footprint of our superyacht clients, and their service providers, whilst preserving cruising freedom.
Our quality service is underpinned by our considerable environmental and yachting sector expertise. Our team has extensive scientific and engineering know-how, as well as direct experience in operating a fully documented environmental management solution in the superyacht sector.
Since our inception in 2008, we have counterbalanced the environmental impact of hundreds of superyacht owners, captains, yacht charter and yacht management companies, marinas, and shipyards, as well as multiple service companies and events.
Our five simple steps to carbon offsetting have helped to offset over a quarter of a million tonnes of carbon by supporting renewable energy and marine projects in developing countries around the world. That’s a lot of carbon!
