The Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) officially announces the return of the Sustainability Hub for its second edition. This dedicated exhibition area will once again showcase companies specializing in sustainable technologies aimed at reducing the environmental impact of superyachts.

Located in the 200m² exhibition space of Darse Sud, dedicated to nautical equipment and technology, the Sustainability Hub serves as an incubator for innovative and eco-friendly solutions.

It provides a platform for both established companies offering tried-and-true sustainable alternatives and budding start-ups seeking to make a mark in the yachting industry with their forward-thinking ideas.

The selection process for the Sustainability Hub's participants is carried out in collaboration with the Water Revolution Foundation. This partnership ensures that only eligible companies with genuine and viable sustainable solutions are included in the exhibition.

The creation of the Sustainability Hub aligns with the Monaco Yacht Show's long-standing commitment to an eco-friendly approach, which was initiated back in 2005. Over the years, the show has played an active role in raising environmental awareness within the Monegasque and international yachting community.

Gaëlle Tallarida, Managing Director of the MYS, emphasized the show's dedication to sustainability, stating, "The Monaco Yacht Show has been at the forefront of raising environmental awareness since joining the Carbon Neutral program in 2005. Our pioneering approach to sustainability led to the establishment of the Sustainability Hub last year. As one of the industry's major voices, we fully embrace our social responsibility. This dedicated area for eco-friendly yachting alternatives is part of our extended sustainability program, which encompasses the entire show's logistics and layout here in the port of Monaco. We aim to support exhibitors, service providers, and visitors alike in finding viable solutions to environmental challenges."

Robert Van Tol, Executive Director of the Water Revolution Foundation, expressed his enthusiasm for the return of the Sustainability Hub, stating, "The Sustainability Hub's second year at the Monaco Yacht Show is a crucial confirmation that there is a growing momentum in yachting. Ever more important is the proof of environmental credentials claimed. The show has been supportive of the vetting criteria, demonstrating its leading position in the field, and utilising Water Revolution Foundation's expertise in sustainability. This exhibition area is designed to showcase technologies that bring concrete improvements to the world of yachting, including the health of the oceans. We are committed to finding, verifying, promoting, and rewarding sustainable solutions, and driving the necessary change."

The Monaco Yacht Show is delighted to announce its partnership with Siemens Energy as the sponsor of the Sustainability Hub. This collaboration offers a unique opportunity for all stakeholders in the yachting industry to engage with Siemens Energy and discuss the integration of sustainable energy sources and clean fuels into an exclusive Energy Management and Propulsion System. The system is specifically designed for electric and hybrid yachts, aiming to reduce and control emissions. By joining forces with Siemens Energy, the Monaco Yacht Show aims to further enhance its commitment to promoting a responsible and environmentally-friendly approach throughout the yachting industry.
