The Monaco Yacht Show has announced the return of its Sustainability Hub for its second edition this September. This dedicated exhibition area will once again showcase companies specialising in sustainable technologies aimed at reducing the environmental impact of superyachts.
Located in the 200m² exhibition space of Darse Sud, dedicated to nautical equipment and technology, the Sustainability Hub serves as an incubator for innovative and eco-friendly solutions, MYS says.
It provides a platform for both established companies offering tried-and-true sustainable alternatives and budding start-ups seeking to make a mark in the yachting industry with their forward-thinking ideas.
The selection process for the Sustainability Hub’s participants is carried out in collaboration with the Water Revolution Foundation. This partnership ensures that only eligible companies with genuine and viable sustainable solutions are included in the exhibition.
The creation of the Sustainability Hub aligns with the Monaco Yacht Show’s long-standing commitment to an eco-friendly approach, which was initiated back in 2005. Over the years, the show has played an active role in raising environmental awareness within the Monegasque and international yachting community.
Gaëlle Tallarida, Managing Director of the MYS, emphasised the show’s dedication to sustainability: “The Monaco Yacht Show has been at the forefront of raising environmental awareness since joining the Carbon Neutral program in 2005. Our pioneering approach to sustainability led to the establishment of the Sustainability Hub last year. As one of the industry’s major voices, we fully embrace our social responsibility. This dedicated area for eco-friendly yachting alternatives is part of our extended sustainability program, which encompasses the entire show’s logistics and layout here in the port of Monaco. We aim to support exhibitors, service providers, and visitors alike in finding viable solutions to environmental challenges.”
