It has been a Monegasque tradition to back initiatives that protect the ocean and its biodiversity for future generations. Starting in the late 19th century, Prince Albert I was a pioneer in this area, undertaking no fewer than 28 oceanographic campaigns – a commitment carried on today by HSH Prince Albert II through his foundation. Today’s situation is of great concern to those involved in the Monegasque yachting sector, led by the Yacht Club de Monaco. The club unites over 800 owners of superyachts, including 37 of the world’s 100 largest yachts, under its flag.



The Association intends to bring together shipyards, operators and owners with a strong desire to lead change and define objectives to reduce emissions, on a voluntary basis, provide information and help implement new solutions.

The long-term goal of the Monaco SEA INDEX is to become the world’s leading air pollution rating system for superyachts, which can also be extended to other sectors and thus lead to a multifaceted sustainability index.
