Sailing towards a greener future...
For each and every event held onboard Oceandiva London, we will be able to leverage technology to help us track and measure the carbon impact of the entire event. Working with industry body isla, we will be able to determine where any carbon emission reductions can be made across the lifecycle of an event; from sourcing, energy used, food and beverage choices to audience travel and everything else in between. By measuring our carbon emissions, per event and on an annual basis, we are able to balance them through tree-planting and the purchase of carbon units via the Woodland Carbon Code (WCC) and the funding of projects certified by Verified Carbon Standard (VCS). We are committed to creating a more sustainable future today.
As a business, we believe that good environmental practice is also good economic practice. We are committed to achieving both at a local level and within communities where we can make a positive impact, including the responsible use of local resources, the integrity of our supply chain, developing our people, the health and wellbeing of our colleagues and clients and minimising any effect that we can have on the environment.
