Hello Superyacht Community!
Welcome to our Winter 2022 Newsletter, covering Events, Environmental and Yachting Industry News.
Yachting Industry News
Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) 2022 (October 2022)
This year, FLIBS 2022 committed to substantially reducing its environmental impact and carbon offsetting played a key role. FLIBS 2022 partnered with Yacht Carbon Offset to counterbalance the impact of 1,000 tonnes CO2e, which represents the greenhouse gas emissions associated with 89,060 US Gallons of fuel consumed by the exhibiting yachts at the show.
Amsterdam Superyacht Forum (November 2022)
Yacht Carbon Offset is excited to be participating in the Superyacht Forum in Amsterdam from the 14th – 16th November 2022. This year’s event is focused around the theme of ‘Evolve or Repeat’, with the aim of inspiring the superyacht industry to “evolve for the future and do things differently”.
Antigua Yacht Charter Meeting (December 2022)
We are looking forward to ending our year with a visit to the Antigua Charter Yacht Meeting (ACYM). This will be the fourteenth consecutive year of supporting the show by providing their carbon offset to counterbalance a substantial part of the show’s carbon footprint.
The UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties, or COP, is the most significant summit in regards to climate change and this year it is taking place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. This is the 27th COP (hence COP27!) and the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Carbon Forward 2022 (October 2022)
Talking about COP27 leads us nicely on to our next topic. Our Managing Director, Rachel Goult, attended Carbon Forward 2022, Europe’s leading environmental conference with a focus on the voluntary carbon market (VCM).
Blue Marine Foundation Initiative
The Blue Marine Foundation is a UK charity dedicated to restoring the health of the world’s oceans.
As part of our service we are offering our clients the opportunity to donate to Blue Marine alongside their carbon offset.
Seasonal Gift Package
After the success of previous years, we would like to remind our readers that we will once again be offering our seasonal gift packages throughout the holiday season. Give the gift of a carbon offset and make a positive impact this year.
