INTRODUCING OUR #GREENWINGSCHALLENGE

“We’re working with Yacht Carbon Offset to help the yachting industry clean up its air travel footprint.
Our goal is to offset enough kilometers to fly to the moon and back 10 times…”

OUR PROGRESS SO FAR

Target distance: 7,688,000 km

WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE

Now more than ever- it is vital that businesses leaders understand the impact of their activities on the environment and take action.

Working within the global yachting industry, air travel is a huge part of the job for our Director, Edward Thomas.

Whilst reflecting on his own travel schedule and witnessing the positive outcome reductions in air travel had on the environment during the Coronavirus Lockdown period, Edward came up with the idea for the #GreenWingsChallenge.

Edward tallied up all the flights he took in 2019 and, in partnership with Yacht Carbon Offset, offset his emissions.

His 38 flights generated nearly 10 tonnes of greenhouse gases.

This is enough to fill the space inside a cube of 12 stacked shipping containers, multiplied by 10…

Now we are calling all CEO’s and travel-mad colleagues in the yachting industry to join him and take on the #GreenWingsChallenge!

Our goal is to offset 7,688,000 KM – enough to fly to the moon and back 10 times.

HOW TO TAKE PART

Go back through your diary for 2019 and list all the flights you took: origin/destination airport; business/economy. 

Send the list to us by email at greenwings@gymmarine.com

At the same time, please can you send us: i) a photo of yourself, and ii) your company logo (in pdf or png format).

These will be added to your profile on the Wall of Supporters along with your flight data; your detailed travel schedule will be not be shared outside of our organisation, and published information will be limited to key statistics. 

Yacht Carbon Offset will send you a quote to arrange and certify the carbon offset for your flight emissions. The cost is modest, at around €2 per thousand passenger kilometers.

Once you receive your certificate, you will join our Wall of Trustees.

Spread the word and challenge your yachting contacts to take part and help us reach our goal.
