Twizzle the new 57.5m flybridge ketch recently launched by Royal Huisman has introduced a policy of carbon offsetting her fuel. Her owner has also chosen to offset the embodied carbon footprint from the energy and principal materials used in her construction.
Twizzle is proud of its Green credentials and has striven to be exceptionally eco-friendly. Not only has it ensured that there is zero discharge into the sea, the yacht is certified to the highest levels for operation in the world’s oceans, including Alaska.
Yacht Carbon Offset has certified that emissions arising from Twizzle’s forthcoming cruising programme will be balanced tonne for tonne by equivalent emissions savings from green energy projects. The one-off carbon offset for her construction is based on Twizzle’s aluminium and steel content, an allowance for other materials and components, and the estimated energy used at the shipyard.
Yacht Carbon Offset’s Managing Director Mark Robinson commented: “We warmly welcome Twizzle to the growing fleet of leading superyachts that have decided to take practical steps to offset their carbon footprint. In particular we are pleased to have enabled her Owner to take this policy further than any other Superyacht to date, by extending the scope to include both the energy and the principal materials of her construction".
"We have seen that Carbon Offsetting appeals to many of those that own and enjoy the world’s finest yachts and we thank Twizzle’s Owner and his team for putting this decision into action.”
