Yacht Carbon Offset carefully selects projects that are tailored to the yachting community. The projects are situated predominantly in coastal or island locations, making an important contribution to the environment and local communities frequented by our maritime clientele.
Renewable Energy Power Projects
The majority of Yacht Carbon Offset’s selected projects are renewable energy power projects, based on solar, wind, hydro and geothermal technologies. These projects have an immediate positive impact on the environment by replacing the need for fossil fuel-based power production. In contrast, carbon sequestration projects (such as tree plantation) take a significant number of years to deliver the environmental benefit.
Marine projects store carbon in coastal and marine ecosystems, such as mangroves, tidal marshes and seagrasses. The importance of marine ecosystems in fighting climate change is increasingly recognised by scientists, natural resource managers and the public.
We are actively researching marine projects that will enable our clients to support these projects. To date, there are very few marine 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.
