America’s Cup Sets Carbon Neutral Target · Environmental Management & Energy News · Environmental Leader: " . . . This summer’s San Francisco race will be the first in the America’s Cup history to have an official carbon credit supplier, according to the America’s Cup Event Authority. In addition to providing carbon credits with links to marine benefits and sailing, Offsetters will also manage the America’s Cup Sustainability Credit program. Each America’s Cup Sustainability Credit is comprised of a carbon credit equivalent to removing 1 metric ton of greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere, and a cash donation to a restoration project in San Francisco Bay. The America’s Cup says all carbon credits will be sourced from high-quality projects, designed to meet or exceed the highest international standard for carbon accounting and offsetting. The race’s other sustainability strategies include diverting materials away from landfill, sourcing local and sustainable food, and reducing emissions from transportation. Event organizers say a carbon management strategy is being implemented to measure the event carbon footprint and reduce America’s Cup emissions as well as those associated with event activities in San Francisco. They did not provide an estimated carbon footprint. . . ."
