The conceptual idea of yachts offsetting their carbon foot print is beginning to catch on. Mark Robinson the Managing Director of Yacht Carbon Offset was walking the docks at the Charter Yacht Show and it seems he has been successful
Mirage, the 53m Feadship super yacht, firmly Elizabeth F now includes carbon offsetting as part of her stringent environmental procedures. The awareness shown by her Owners reflects the high standards expected by her prominent charter clients.
As Mirage embarks on a busy charter season, Yacht Carbon Offset matches the greenhouse gas emissions from her engines, tonne for tonne, with equivalent emissions reductions from verified green energy projects.
Colin Richardson, Mirage’s Captain commented: “Mirage’s new Owners have made it a priority that the yacht should maintain extremely high environmental standards. I am very pleased that this is the case, and agreed with them that Mirage would begin a carbon offset policy to eliminate the carbon footprint from her fuel. This practical, effective service is a natural step for us and we are pleased to be working with Yacht Carbon Offset to put this decision into action.”
Mark Robinson said: “It is a great pleasure to welcome Mirage to the growing list of yachts that show leadership by going beyond the mandatory anti-pollution requirements. Their action supports independently audited green energy projects that would not exist without the carbon funding, so it really does makes a difference. Mirage shows yet again how ultimate service can be delivered in a greener way.”
