Quid Pro Quo, the 30m Benetti Tradition motor yacht featured at the 2012 MYBA Charter Show in Genoa, has introduced a policy of carbon offsetting her fuel. With her first carbon offset already in place, the carbon footprint of the yacht’s engines will be balanced by equivalent emissions reductions from verified green energy projects.
Robert Frost, Quid Pro Quo’s Captain commented: “The future of our planet and her preservation should be a high priority to every human being. We on Quid Pro Quo set out to achieve the highest possible standards in all aspects. Our partnership with Yacht Carbon Offset is yet another way in which we are committed to being proactive in our approach.”
Yacht Carbon Offset’s Managing Director Mark Robinson said: “We are delighted that Quid Pro Quo has selected Yacht Carbon Offset to neutralise the carbon footprint from her engines. For an active charter yacht, it is a practical example of how environmental standards can be enhanced in a meaningful yet convenient way. We look forward to providing our specialist service to Quid Pro Quo for her cruising programme, and thank all on board for their support”
Yacht Carbon Offset provides a fully-documented service for those that own and enjoy the world’s leading superyachts and has Lloyds Register Quality Assurance Certification.
