A CARBON-NEUTRAL ORGANISATION

Being carbon-neutral involves purchasing carbon credits to offset the emissions associated with the business operation of our three global offices, including international flights and employee travel to and from work.

It was estimated that the net total carbon emissions for RightShip during 2016 / 2017 was 951 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (tCO2-e)1, which were offset to support the Lavers Hill Conservation efforts in the Great Otway National Park, Australia.

Through the carbon offset program, RightShip is upholding its commitment to provide leadership in environmental sustainability to the international shipping industry.

CARBON-NEUTRAL EVENTS

RightShip provides carbon offset sponsorship of selected maritime industry events, working with organisers to take responsibility for emissions associated with the event and to lead in climate change action.

The carbon footprint of the event is estimated, taking into consideration the number of attendees, the location and length of the event,and the accommodation and travel requirements of the delegates.

RightShip then purchases the required number of carbon offset credits to make the event carbon-neutral. A carbon offset certificate is awarded to the conference, highlighting the commitment of both RightShip and the organisers to compensate for the environmental impact of their event.

Alongside our mission to make our seas safer and minimise the environmental impact of international shipping, we believe we make a difference by supporting not-for-profit maritime organisations, including those that work towards improving the wellbeing of seafarers.

In the past two years we have supported the following organisations:

  • The Sailors’ Society – donating AUD$70K to provide social welfare coaching in maritime technical colleges across China; raised over USD$12K in the 2017 Asian Challenge (further to the USD$20K+ raised in 2015). In addition, our former Vetting Superintendent Mathieu Antin completed the 2017 London Marathon in support of Sailors’ Society, raising a further GBP 3,000.
  • Mission to Seafarers, Melbourne, Australia – RightShip donated AUD$10K to assist with the purchase of a second bus to transport seafarers in 2017.
  • Yale University – USD$40K to fund the development of a sustainable seafarer research database, which is dedicated to the study and promotion of seafarer health and wellness, while providing actionable information to reduce injury and illness at sea.
  • Alma Doepel restoration fund – donated over AUD$11K to cover the cost of 2,000 forged, galvanised bolts required for fastening the new hull framing and planking on Alma Doepel.
  • Port Arthur Seafarers Centre, Houston, TX – donated USD$2K to purchase computer equipment.
  • Seafarers House, Fort Lauderdale, Florida – donated over USD$7K to purchase computer equipment.
  • Seamen’s Centre, Corpus Christi, Texas – following Hurricane Harvey in 2017, RightShip donated over USD$4K to replace damaged computer equipment

RightShip also support staff fundraising efforts by matching their total raised dollar-for-dollar (up to $200) per event or cause.
