Monaco Yacht Show/RINA Green Award for YP
RINA has awarded the Ocean Emerald the new Green Plus certification at the 19th Monaco Yacht Show and the award was presented by Prince Albert of Monaco. This award attests to the commitment of constructors and yacht owners to produce pleasure craft which conserve the environment.
“The yacht owners want the best performances for their boats, in line with the latest innovations in materials and systems. They are ready to use all the latest technologies which will enable them to reach the highest levels of efficiency with a minimum impact on the environment,” Salerno, MD of RINA, said.
The Green Plus certification is awarded to the new boats which use planning solutions, systems and operational procedures enabling them to obtain the improvement of the yacht’s performance as well as conserving the environment, also exceeding the international requirements concerning eco-compatibility. The grant of the Green Plus certification is based on an indicator in the environmental performance of the yacht, which takes into account all the aspects tied to the impact on the environment, including carbon emissions.
