Yacht and home interior designer, Gym Marine, has announced the launch of a new sustainability project called the #GreenWingsChallenge.
A collaborative effort between Gym Marine and Yacht Carbon Offset, the challenge aims to offset greenhouse gas emissions from flights undertaken by superyacht industry professionals.
During the coronavirus pandemic, CEO of Gym Marine, Edward Thomas has reflected on his frequent use of air travel and its effect on the environment.
To start the initiative, Thomas tallied up his flights from 2019 for client meetings, yacht shows and industry events which amounted to as much as 10 tonnes of greenhouses gases from 38 flights. He offset his emissions for a price of just £95 (€105), which would be used by Yacht Carbon Offset to fund green energy projects in yachting hubs around the world. In order to continue supporting emission reduction, Thomas decided to launch the Gym Marine #GreenWingsChallenge and invited colleagues from the travel industry and superyacht world to follow suit.
In an official statement, Gym Marine commented, “Now more than ever, it is vital that businesses leaders understand the impact of their activities on the environment and take action […] Our goal is to offset 7,688,000 kilometres (4,777,101 miles) – enough to fly to the moon and back 10 times.”
The first six trustees have collectively offset a total of 953,889 kilometres (592,719 miles) – more than enough mileage to fly to the moon. However, Gym Marine is urging others to contribute in order to meet the company’s final goal.
To get involved, industry professionals are asked to send a report of the flights they took last year to Gym Marine. This information will be used to help Yacht Carbon Offset produce an emissions offsetting quote, amounting to approximately €2 per thousand passenger kilometres.
