If you absolved our Sustainability in Practice management course or follow the regulatory developments in line with the European Green Deal, you may have noticed the increased importance given to non-financial reporting.
Therefore, together with our strategic partner Centre For Sustainablity And Excellence (CSE), we have developed Sustainability Reporting Guidelines specific to the yachting sector. These guidelines will prepare you with the questions relevant to our industry, will help you to understand where you stand in the preparation for official reporting, and will be a practical tool to help to focus on the relevant topics.
Even if currently required only for larger companies, the target group is being widened. Furthermore, addressing non-financial reporting is beneficial for your company’s sustainability endeavours and for engagement with your stakeholders.

METSTRADE, the world’s greatest exhibition and networking event for B2B leisure marine equipment suppliers and buyers, is further building on its consistent efforts to promote best practice in sustainability across the sector. In addition to other initiatives, this year’s show will introduce a ‘Superyacht Sustainability Route’ in collaboration with the Water Revolution Foundation. Focused on the superyacht industry, this new initiative will indicate exhibitors on the METSTRADE 2022 show floor who have passed the Foundation’s rigorous Life Cycle Assessment with a verified entry in its Database of Sustainable Solutions.
The Superyacht Sustainability Route is anticipated to be of significant assistance to the purchasers who attend METSTRADE 2022. Buyers are highly dependent on reliable third-party confirmation of environmental credentials to achieve the increasingly ambitious environmental objectives of their companies and the boats and superyachts that they build, refit and care for.
Niels Klarenbeek, METSTRADE Show Director, states: “The launch of this year’s Superyacht Sustainability Route is in addition to other initiatives that METSTRADE is facilitating to promote sustainability across the sector. As the Water Revolution Foundation’s Database of Sustainable Solutions builds on the availability of independent third-party verification, we aim to bring more transparency to the innovative environmental impact reduction activities of the superyacht sector and its supply chain.”
Robert van Tol, executive director of Water Revolution Foundation, adds: “What a way to celebrate our fourth anniversary at METSTRADE! The new Superyacht Sustainability Route will benefit both visiting decision makers and exhibiting suppliers. Third-party verification of environmental credentials is crucial for the yachting sector to accelerate its sustainability progress. We’re very pleased that the world’s largest gathering of B2B leisure marine equipment professionals embraces this approach and provide extra spotlight to those that deserve it.”

We are excited to announce a strategic partnership with the Monaco Yacht Show. The 2022 show in September will feature a new area called Sustainability Hub. To ensure this new area showcases the most advanced companies and solutions, we have worked with the MYS organisers on criteria to be met at the registration process for eligibility. Solutions that have already been verified by us for the Database of Sustainable Solutions are automatically eligible for exhibiting.
Gaëlle Tallarida, Managing Director of the MYS: “The MYS constitutes one of the industry’s major voices; a share of social responsibility that we fully assume today, together with the whole yachting community. That’s why we’ve decided to collaborate with the Water Revolution Foundation. They have the legitimate resources to select the eligible companies to exhibit at the Sustainability Hub. The MYS also wants to be a driving force to support the development of real environmental solutions in yachting”.
This is a great step forward to show the sustainability progress in yachting and put those that lead the way in a well-deserved spotlight. We continue to grow the list of benefits for verified solutions.
Should you be interested to learn more and/or apply to exhibit in this new area, please get in contact with Sidonie Bonnier, Exhibitor Account Manager, via firstname.lastname@example.org or (+377) 93 10 41 70.
