This conference was attended by 50 Superyacht Captains from all over the world, all members of the Captains Club.
Eight points were discussed, from “Prevent marine pollution” to “Collaboration and sharing”.
See below the eight detailed points that served as a support for the discussion.
The objective of this webinar, an initiative of a superyacht Captain from the Yacht Club de Monaco, is to propose to the whole superyacht industry, an Eco Chart to promote every-day ecological practices to superyacht Captains and complete the YCM’s SEA Index.
In the absence of a global CO2 emissions benchmark for superyachts, the goal of the SEA Index is to encourage the yachting industry to research and put forward solutions that will reduce the environmental impact of superyacht activity.
