Sustainability is at the heart of all that we do at Peninsula. For the past 25 years, we have been the leading provider of global marine energy services and solutions. In that time we have worked endlessly to provide good quality, well-priced, and sustainably focused superyacht fuel; spanning across 6 continents.

Understanding the importance of making immediate environmentally conscious changes; our guiding purpose is to lead the marine industry’s transition into a more sustainable future. In recent years we have begun to pioneer new marine fuels that have not only met, but have exceeded specifications set out by the regulatory bodies; ensuring that our customers are also doing their part for the planet. We take pride in our meticulous approach to operations, logistics, and supply chain management, ensuring that all fuel purchases and deliveries adhere strictly to ISO 8217:2017 specifications. Our commitment to excellence extends beyond industry standards as we implement rigorous sampling and testing protocols in our supply chain control, surpassing best practices in the industry.

As part of the operation, our team are often on the move to deliver rigorous testing, sampling and supplier vetting. These deliverables guarantee high-quality products ensuring our customers are receiving the best service. Although this process is vital, we believe it’s within our power to offset the footprint that we leave behind. Superyachts have consistently embraced cutting-edge innovation, with shipyards, designers, and owners independently striving to push boundaries and achieve progress. However, in the pursuit of creating emission-free yachts, collaboration becomes imperative. To achieve this ambitious goal, all stakeholders must join forces and work collectively towards a sustainable future. Our dedication to the conservation of our oceans and planet is at the forefront of every decision at Peninsula, and this is why we have chosen to reduce our footprint further by working alongside Yacht Carbon Offset

Yacht Carbon Offset operates as a specialised environmental service company, dedicated to minimising the overall environmental impact of the superyacht industry. The company’s mission revolves around offering a customised carbon offset service, designed to neutralise the carbon footprint of superyacht clients and their respective service providers, all the while ensuring the preservation of cruising freedom. Since its establishment in 2008, Yacht Carbon Offset has successfully offset the environmental impact of numerous superyacht owners, captains, yacht charter and yacht management companies, marinas, shipyards, service companies, and events. Through their five straightforward carbon offsetting steps, the company has made a significant impact by supporting renewable energy and marine projects in countries across the globe.

Carbon offsetting is a way to reduce the impact of greenhouse gas emissions on the environment. It involves investing in projects that remove or reduce an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere to compensate for emissions produced elsewhere, for Peninsula this is our team’s travel. By supporting initiatives like reforestation or renewable energy projects, individuals and organisations can balance out their carbon footprint and work towards carbon neutrality or net-zero emissions, contributing to the fight against climate change.

The nature of carbon offsetting mechanisms leads to the majority of carbon reduction projects being situated in developing countries. Yacht Carbon Offset work with projects across the globe, from Mexico to India, and everywhere in between. The projects chosen have been thoughtfully curated for the benefit of the superyacht community and their maritime clientele. These projects predominantly exist in coastal or island regions, playing a significant role in addressing global environmental concerns while also providing valuable support to local communities in countries that require external financial assistance.

At Peninsula, we are dedicated to improving our processes to make our planet safe. We already focus on exclusively using second-generation biofuels that have a considerably smaller impact on the planet. Additionally, we recently received our ISCC EU certification that promises ethical and sustainable practices throughout our entire production chain. Now, by working with the team at Yacht Carbon Offset we are able to continue working with our incredible network of suppliers, and offering industry-leading, competitively priced superyacht fuels; while being confident that our carbon footprint is being offset in an effective, practical, and ethical way. We believe that this is a worthwhile investment to ensure not only the evolution of a more environmentally conscious superyacht industry, but also the continuation of the fight against climate change and global warming.
