Althelia Ecosphere has been named the Official Supplier for the 34th America’s Cup in the Ecosystem Goods and Services Management category.
The America’s Cup Event Authority (ACEA) and Althelia Ecosphere will work closely together over the next two years to develop and implement ACEA’s Carbon and Ecosystem Services management program. The program will supplement efforts taken by ACEA to reduce the carbon footprint of event activities associated with the 34th America’s Cup.
The innovative America’s Cup Sustainability Credit (ACSC) will support high-quality, validated and verified offset projects in a manner that is in keeping with ACEA’s commitment to ocean conservation through its AC Healthy Ocean Project, and in particular Marine Protected Areas. In addition, the ACSC will contain a local element that supports education and sustainability initiatives in areas where ACEA hosts America’s Cup events.
