The Monaco Yacht Show, like a number of other shows, including Milan Design Week, part of the Salone del Mobile, is aiming to become more sustainable. They have created a transition plan to reach a carbon neutral standing, meaning a balance between emissions and CO2 absorption. To this end, in addition to the Sustainability Hub in the next edition, the show has created a webinar for its exhibitors and suppliers, to illustrate the efforts and actions being undertaken to reduce its environmental impact.


The Monaco Yacht Show’s transition to becoming more sustainable will be carried out in three phases, all which actively involve the entire chain, and aim to reduce CO2 emissions by 60% (compared to last year) by 2025. A plan based on information gathered during the 2022 edition, and that is in line with the Principality of Monaco’s objective of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.

These are the three steps defined by the Monaco Yacht Show:

  • reduce direct emissions during the event, including coolant used for air conditioning, whose negative load during the event is equivalent to 48.5 tonnes;
  • reduce indirect emissions created through electricity and water use, already fairly low, with a minimum impact in both water (0.1 tonnes) and electricity (2.4 tonnes);
  • reduce other indirect emissions created by businesses that are not owned or controlled by the Monaco Yacht Show, like those created by exhibitors, suppliers, waste management and transport, all which are quite significant.

The load of emissions created by the Show is not indifferent. Looking at the data collected by the Monaco Yacht Show, employees contribute 1 tonne (equivalent to 190 return trips from Paris to Bordeaux by train), visitors generate 6,608 tonnes (equivalent to 6,600 return trips from Paris to New York by plane), waste is 5 tonnes (equivalent to 44,000 plastic cups), service suppliers produce 39 tonnes (equivalent to 741 years of energy consumption by a television) and exhibitors 77 tonnes (equivalent to 620,000 kilometres driven using a diesel car).

Statistics which show the importance of sustainable actions needed throughout all phases of the event, from set up to take down, creating a sustainable future for boating.
