sustainable yacht advisory
Creating a healthy relationship between yachts & nature
providing solutions in sustainable yachting
‘Bio’ means natural while ‘Blu’ is for the oceans - our mission is to advance the yacht industry's transition to a sustainable future
Sustainable yachting advisory
We advise yacht brands, owners, shipyards and refit yards on sustainable interiors, engineering systems and crew operations that respect people and planet. We integrate into wider project teams playing a Sustainability Champion and/or Wellbeing Champion role.
Sustainable yacht operations
By collaborating with superyacht captains, owner representatives, crews and engineers on operations policies we can reduce plastic waste aboard, implement toxin-free interiors and plastic-free pantries, assist with making yacht carbon offsets, create eco-friendly cleaning protocols and source plastic-free gym equipment.
The next generation of green yachts
Various eco yacht certification systems are now active in the market, each playing an important role in raising sustainability standards with the sector, mostly focused on engineering systems. We believe greater consideration for healthy interior design, sustainable materials and eco onboard operations is needed here for a complete 360 perspective of a yacht's impact on people and planet.
