Imagine, the first Limited Edition Amels 212 superyacht, has introduced a policy of carbon offsetting her fuel. The yacht’s operators have gone beyond the required standards of environmental management, by pro-actively reducing her net carbon footprint. To achieve this positive impact, Yacht Carbon Offset counterbalances the greenhouse gas emissions of Imagine’s engines with equivalent emissions reductions from verified green energy projects.
Grahame Shorrocks, Imagine’s Captain said: “More and more of the guests who come onboard Imagine are increasingly aware of the environmental impact yachting has and are interested in how we can offset these effects. To this end, the operators of Imagine are proceeding with a Yacht Carbon Offset programme, which will allow us to operate in an environmentally sensitive manner in the future.”
Yacht Carbon Offset’s Managing Director Mark Robinson commented: “We warmly welcome Motor Yacht Imagine to the growing fleet of leading superyachts that have decided to take practical steps to offset their carbon footprint. We have seen that Carbon Offsetting is a priority for many of those that own and enjoy the world’s finest yachts and we thank Imagine’s Owner and his team for putting this decision into action”
Yacht Carbon Offset provides a specialist service for those that own and enjoy the world’s leading superyachts and has Lloyds Register Quality Assurance Certification. For details and to take action to balance your yacht’s greenhouse gas emissions, visit www.yachtcarbonoffset.com
