Impact of operations

The Yacht Club de Monaco is working on improving the environmental impact of its operations. Different solutions, whether for land or maritime activities, have been studied and implemented, aiming to use renewable energy sources. This initiative echoes the various actions already put in place in the past, as evidenced by the achievement of the ISO 14001 certification in June 2016, a managerial approach that grants it the status of an eco-responsible company.

Dynamic buoys

The Yacht Club of Monaco employs dynamic positioning buoys for organizing sports events. Noted for their precise geolocation capabilities, these buoys require no anchoring, thus significantly reducing seabed disturbances. The use of dynamic positioning buoys reflects our commitment to minimizing environmental impact during nautical events.

YCM utilizes TL E-Fuel for its crane and certain vessels within its fleet, including Tuiga and the committee boat, which lack electric propulsion. E-Fuels, including TL E-Fuel, are produced through a process that involves capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and using renewable energy sources (such as wind or solar power) to convert the captured CO2 into a liquid fuel. TL E-Fuel is a specific brand or type of E-Fuel that is derived from the recycling of cooking oils. It is known for its reduced carbon impact and is considered an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional fossil fuels.

Electric Boat Fleet

The Sports Section of the Yacht Club de Monaco currently utilizes five electrically propelled boats for sailing lessons and race organization. Additionally, a new committee boat is under development, which will use alternative energy sources for its propulsion. This project places a special emphasis on energy efficiency right from the design stage, reflecting our commitment to more sustainable boating solutions.




Supply Chain : The Yacht Club de Monaco works toward a responsible purchasing policy, favoring local, sustainable, ethical products and services with a low environmental impact. This includes selecting suppliers who share sustainability values.


Paper consumption

Papier FSC

Paper Consumption & FSC Paper : The departments of the Yacht Club de Monaco are working to reduce printing and promote the use of FSC-certified paper, ensuring that paper products come from responsibly and sustainably managed forests




Waste Management : The Club implements stringent waste management practices, aiming to reduce, reuse, and recycle as much as possible and ecologically treating non-recyclable waste. An effective recycling program is in place to minimize waste. This involves separating and recycling materials such as plastic, metal, glass, and paper. In 2024, the Yacht Club de Monaco will launch a significant sustainable initiative: the upcycling of select event banners. This project is conducted in collaboration with AMAPEI, making it both an environmental and social endeavor. The aim is to repurpose our signage into both useful and aesthetic products, supporting responsible consumption and strengthening our community engagement.
