MYBA Show to offset carbon emissions
MYBA will be partnering Yacht Carbon Offset at the 23rd MYBA Yacht Show, being held in Genoa in May 2011.
MYBA represents over 100 yachting companies, more and more of which are choosing to offset their carbon footprint. Yacht Carbon Offset has selected to match the carbon emissions from the electricity consumed at the event with the savings made from its project in Nicaragua.
For the yachts themselves, Carbon Offsetting can easily be included in the arrangements of a luxury charter, and is a proportionate response that preserves full freedom of operation. Yacht Carbon Offset’s Lloyds Register Quality Assurance Certification underpins the effectiveness of the action.
Jacqui Lockhart, Chairwoman of MYBA’s Boat Show Committee, said: “The MYBA Show is dedicated to charter professionals and provides a showcase for the finest superyachts available to their clients. It also hosts an exclusive display of those ancillary services that go to make up a perfect charter, tailored to the particular requirements of each group. Carbon offsetting is just such a service which a broker can offer to personalise each charter. Equally, it is a practical way for MYBA to address its own environmental impact and we are pleased to continue our work with Yacht Carbon Offset for the Genoa show.”
Yacht Carbon Offset’s Managing Director Mark Robinson commented: “We are delighted to be participating at the forthcoming MYBA Show and look forward to raising awareness of our specialist service during this important event. Carbon offsetting appeals to many high profile charter clients and we thank the MYBA team once again for their support.”
