MYBA Charter Show 2010 offsets carbon emissions

Following the success of a partnership during the MYBA Selection in the South of France last September. The brokers association has chosen once again to work with Yacht Carbon Offset to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions from its 2010 event, which will take place in Genoa from May 3rd – 7th.

Carbon savings from one of Yacht Carbon Offset’s selected projects, in Nicaragua, have been allocated to match the estimated carbon emissions from electricity consumption at the event.

Fiona Maureso, Chairman of the Show Committee, said: “The MYBA Show is dedicated to charter professionals and provides a showcase for the finest superyachts on the charter market today. However, we are increasingly aware that the event does create a carbon footprint and we are pleased to be working with Yacht Carbon Offset to reduce its impact. We have chosen Yacht Carbon Offset as they provide a specialist service for the superyacht industry and have Lloyds Register Quality Assurance Certification”.

Yacht Carbon Offset’s Managing Director Mark Robinson commented: “We are delighted to be participating at the forthcoming show and look forward to raising awareness of our specialist service during this important event.”
