The carbon offsetting service provided by Yacht Carbon Offset is a composite service including (but not limited to) the calculation of greenhouse gas emissions due to specified client activity, the allocation of equivalent greenhouse gas reductions from selected compliance market and/or non compliance market carbon credits to provide the offset, assistance with articulating the business benefit to yachts offered for charter and the more general provision of publicity in relation to the Client’s greenhouse gas mitigation where required and authorised, and the provision of flags or similar visible signals of participation for use on the vessel or premises. Yacht Carbon Offset itself arranges for the cancellation or retirement of carbon credit instruments and ensures that this is included in the external audit of the Company’s management system; the Company does not supply carbon credits directly to its carbon offset clients.
Yacht Carbon Offset’s delivery policy is that the Offset will be allocated to the customer, promptly following confirmation that payment has been received. Upon such allocation, a certificate will be emailed to the email address provided by the customer to confirm that the Offset has been recorded.

Yacht Carbon Offset Limited may accept orders for Offsets in relation to an individual yacht from more than one purchaser, noting that in some cases Offsets may be purchased by different people or companies in relation to use of the vessel.

Some transactions may involve a significant time period between the provision of a quotation and/or proforma invoice by Yacht Carbon Offset Limited and receipt of payment by the customer.
