Renewable Energy Projects (‘Green’ Carbon)
Yacht Carbon Offset selects carbon offset credits predominantly from renewable energy projects, such as solar, wind and geothermal technologies. This is due to the immediate emission reduction impact such projects have on the environment, in contrast to carbon sequestration projects (such as tree plantation) that can take a number of years to deliver the benefit. Our projects are largely situated in coastal or island locations to reflect the maritime nature of our clientele e.g. Caribbean or coastal locations.
Marine Projects (‘Blue’ Carbon)
Blue carbon is the carbon stored in coastal and marine ecosystems, such as mangroves, tidal marshes and seagrasses. The importance of blue carbon ecosystems in fighting climate change is increasingly recognised by scientists, natural resource managers and the public.
We are actively researching blue carbon credits that will enable our clients to support these projects. To date, there are very few of these credits available due to the complexity, time and cost to complete the accreditation process. We hope to be able to propose blue carbon credits to our clients in the near future.
