With the 2023 edition of Monaco Yacht Show less than one week away, we are thrilled to be collaborating as strategic partners for the second year in a row. Our joint mission to support the development of environmental initiatives in the yachting sector remains steadfast, reflected through the many exciting programmes we will be showcasing during the event.

A handpicked lineup of exhibitors with sustainable solutions that have passed our rigorous vetting process will be highlighted at the Sustainability Hub. Keep an eye out for solutions with our verification stamp – this signifies that they have undergone a stringent third-party Life Cycle Assessment conducted by an independent research institute to prove their superior performance and reduction of environmental impact compared to the business as usual.

You can find a member of our team there from 27 -30 September, 10:00 – 12:00 & 15:00 – 17:00 each day throughout the show.

Environmental Sustainability in Yachting Conference

For the second year, a press conference will be taking place to share the industry’s commitment to research and develop sustainable solutions in yachting. Alongside Gaëlle Tallarida, Derek Munro and Massimo Perotti, our Executive Director Robert van Tol will be sharing facts to highlight the carbon footprint of yachting in comparison to other industries and sustainable approaches in yachting.

The conference will occur on Wednesday, 27 September, 10:00 – 12:30, Conference Room (Virage Louis Chiron).

Launch of the Designers’ Protocol

The protocol, developed by Dickie Bannenberg of Bannenberg & Rowell Design together with our Sustainable Yacht Design Taskforce, will offer a standardized document guiding sustainability principles for every new project. A roundtable discussion will take place together with Francesca Webster, Espen Oeino, Phillippe Briand, and our Executive Director Robert van Tol.

Sustainable Yachting Future: The role of Water Revolution

An in-depth update of our activities and developments will be shared to wrap up all initiatives announced throughout the week. Among these is the Environmental Crew Guidelines, initiated by MB92 to foster awareness across all onboard departments within day-to-day operations. During the show, we will be liaising with yacht management companies and crew in order to gain support and commitment leading up to the launch of the guidelines next month.

Join us for the presentation on Thursday, 28 September, 17:00 – 17:30, Conference Room (Virage Louis Chiron).
