Monaco Marine is now inviting its superyacht clients to ‘carbon offset’ their shore power connections.

FEBRUARY 2010

Monaco Marine already compensates for its own carbon emissions with the help of Yacht Carbon Offset.
“One of our guiding principles is respect for the environment; our ISO 14001 Certification in La Ciotat is a proof of our commitment that we share in all our shipyards,” says Michel Ducros, Monaco Marine’s president. “Building on our strategy of continually striving to improve waste management and overall environmental performance, the issue of greenhouse gases is clearly on our agenda. Working with our clients on a voluntary basis, we see carbon offsetting as a pragmatic action that we can introduce immediately... We are pleased to be working with Yacht Carbon Offset to bring this option to our customers and to have the opportunity to widen awareness of effective carbon offsetting amongst yachts of all sizes.”
Yacht Carbon Offset helps yachts compensate for their carbon footprints, especially the fuel used by the yacht engines and generators. Its effectiveness is underpinned by Yacht Carbon Offset’s Lloyds Register Quality Assurance Certification.
Monaco Marine offers a broad range of services from basic maintenance to refit of yachts. The six shipyards − La Ciotat, Golfe de St Tropez, Port Fréjus, St Laurent du Var, Beaulieu sur Mer and Monaco − are able to do major work on yachts of all sizes. The shipyards can coordinate engineering, carpentry, painting, electronics and other disciplines.
