Royal Huisman’s Sailing yacht Ethereal received Zero carbon footprint Status consecutively for the second year.

The carbon footprint of the 58m (190-foot) Ethereal had become zero by using carbon offsets supplied by the CarbonNeutral Company. Ethereal’s carbon footprint for 2009 had been offset through the Tieling coal mine methane project in China, which captures coal mine methane and uses it as an energy source to supply gas to homes and local industry.

The sailing yacht’s 2010 footprint will be offset through The CarbonNeutral Company’s OneNature portfolio, made up of 100 percent renewable energy projects.
