Yacht Club de Monaco- Environmental Initiatives 

Thursday 27th July 2023. With a policy firmly focused on protecting the environment and as part of the collective ‘Monaco, Capital of Advanced Yachting’ approach, Yacht Club de Monaco is ramping up initiatives that underpin its commitments. YCM’s building, inaugurated in June 2014, is the perfect example as it was built to HQE® (Haute Qualité Environnementale) standards to minimise disruption during construction, manage energy, acoustics, water quality, etc.). Eco-design features include photovoltaic cells, low-energy LED lighting, efficient energy, waste and water management systems, a hydro-cooling system that recycles water from the harbour, solar tubes and charging stations for electric vehicles and boats used in the Club.


More recently, YCM had a swimming pool water treatment system installed that to date has recovered and treated 256.79m3 of which 231m3 has gone back into the Club’s pool water circuit. The initiative has proved its worth as evidenced by a quick comparison of pool water consumption in 2022 which averaged 49m3 a week and that in 2023, down to just 7.75m3, a saving of 206.75m3 over a period of five weeks.

Some of this water is also used to water plants and wash boats via a dedicated network to meet drought related recommendations.
