Superyacht owners urged to make recompense for their fuel use

Boat owners who can still afford to use large quantities of marine diesel are being urged to consider offsetting their carbon footprint by contributing to afforestation, renewable energy, energy efficiency programmes and methane recovery. If the increases in fuel prices are not enough disincentive, a London based organisation is available to help you make amends for your leisure fuel use, by offering carbon offset certificates that correspond with your carbon dioxide emissions.

Yacht Carbon Offset will estimate the carbon dioxide equivalent emissions attributable to the fuel quantities used and identifying appropriate Carbon Offset projects to make up for your excesses.

Don’t all rush at once!
