In 2021 Yacht Carbon Offset was delighted to become a member of the Superyacht Eco Association Index (SEA Index), an initiative led by the Yacht Club de Monaco to measure the environmental impact of superyachts. SEA Index’s goal is to become the global industry standard for measuring environmental ratings. With information about a yacht’s ecological standard easily accessible, owners and builders will be able to design and create yachts with a lower environmental impact. We look forward to supporting SEA Index in the development of this tool and to help its supporters lower the environmental impact of the yachting sector.
