The Center for Sustainability and Excellence (CSE) in cooperation with Water Revolution Foundation (WRF) developed the Sustainability Reporting Guidelines to inform companies in the yachting industry about which information and data they need to collect to get an overview of their current sustainability performance, as well as create sustainability reports that are in-compliance with European legislation (NFRD, CSRD). The Guidelines also assist companies understand how their initiatives and performance are related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
CSE also developed a specialized course on Sustainability focused on Superyacht industry and its supply chain and in collaboration with WRF had certified over 150 professionals of the industry from Europe, North America, Middle East and Asia.
“Following our successful joint Sustainability-in-practice training course we continuously provide to land-based yachting professionals, Water Revolution Foundation and CSE now launch a set of guidelines to help the yachting sector get started with internal sustainability reporting. These directly serve those who completed the course, but also prepare many of their companies that will face non-financial reporting obligations in the near future”.
