Mirage Introduces Carbon Offset
The stunning 53 metre charter yacht Mirage now includes carbon offsetting as part of her strict environmental agenda.
The elegant motor yacht from Feadship is about to embark on a busy charter season, during which the Yacht Carbon Offset will match the greenhouse gas emissions from her engines, with equivalent emissions reductions from verified green energy projects.
"Mirage’s new owners have made it a priority that the yacht should maintain extremely high environmental standards. I am very pleased that this is the case, and agreed with them that Mirage would begin a carbon offset policy to eliminate the carbon footprint from her fuel. This practical, effective service is a natural step for us and we are pleased to be working with Yacht Carbon Offset to put this decision into action,” commented Mirage’s Captain, Colin Richardson.
Mark Robinson, Yacht Carbon Offset’s Managing Director added, “It is a great pleasure to welcome Mirage to the growing list of yachts that show leadership by going beyond the mandatory anti-pollution requirements. Their action supports independently audited green energy projects that would not exist without the carbon funding, so it really does makes a difference. Mirage shows yet again how ultimate service can be delivered in a greener way. We look forward to providing our specialist service to this superb yacht, and thank her Owners and all on board for their decision to work with us.”
The awareness for the environment demonstrated by her owner reflects the extremely high standards expected by her charter clients.
