The Amels 212, delivered by the shipyard in and managed by Ocean Management, has become the first superyacht in the world to be awarded a “Green Passport” by Lloyds Register.
The Green Passport—or “Inventory of Hazardous Materials”—was devised as a result of the Hong Kong International Convention of Safe and Environmentally Sound Recycling of Ships 2009. Qualification for the designation requires the builder to put together a highly detailed list that identifies and locates all the materials that have been used in the yacht’s construction.
“It is time to monitor the life cycle of a ship and the noxious and dangerous substances on board from ‘cradle to the grave’ of the ship,” says Daniel Küpfer, Project and Management Director. “Our environmentally oriented clients welcome the Green Passport. We also believe that it will enhance the resale value of the first yachts being awarded these passports, as the passport will become compulsory for superyachts in the future.”
