This category is divided into Eco Suppliers, Awareness, Foundations and Carbon-Offset. In terms of suppliers we look for novel environmentally friendly approaches to entrenched problems. Sometimes that new approach is made possible by way of a technological breakthrough like increased electric output from advanced solar panels; other times it’s just a question of thinking outside the box such as biodegradable golf balls.
It is a category where we are only scratching the surface and we expect our offering here to grow. Awareness and Foundations are all about exposing the challenges faced by our oceans and exploring the solutions offered by these organisations. Finally, there is carbon–offset; another proposal for reducing our carbon footprint and equally applicable to conventional or hybrid yachts.
For every eco yacht that we broker we donate 10% of our net proceeds to one of the foundations that you see listed “here”.
