Despite only being one year underway, Water Revolution Foundation was surprised to be recognised by Robb Report as the winner of their Sustainability Award.
The explanation was that “Water Revolution Foundation’s business model made the most sense for longevity because it was being funded privately by some of the strongest superyacht brands in the industry. We also felt that the self-interest of these brands (making sure the oceans are healthy) was a stronger base than just altruistic organizations who rely on outside funding. We also felt that you were coming up with practical sustainability models that each shipyard could use internally in order to gauge and monitor their environmental impact. We felt that this was the most promising and serious effort we’d seen by an internal organization. This was our first Sustainability Award, and we felt that it should go to a group, even in its infancy, that would be around for a long time.”
