The classic regatta has become the first of its kind in the world to offset all of its greenhouse gas emissions with United Nations certification thanks to the verified measurement of all of its carbon footprint, carried out by the Mallorcan company TRUEWORLD.
Club de Mar Mallorca, in collaboration with the Mallorcan company TRUEWORLD, carried out the measurement of the environmental impact of the XXVII Regatta Illes Balears Clàssics held in August last year. After measuring the carbon footprint related to the regatta, the organisation compensated the emissions and became the first Carbon Neutral event of these characteristics in the world.
On 2 February TRUEWORLD handed over the sustainability report, the offset certificates and the sustainable event badge. This marks the end of the process of offsetting the carbon footprint of the regatta. The Club, through this type of initiatives, is committed to halving the emissions in the regatta by 2030 and achieving zero net emissions by 2050. With this, the Club reconfirms its commitment to sustainability, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations and the fight against climate change.
The environmental impact measurement was carried out in accordance with international GHG PROTOCOL standards along with the deployment of state-of-the-art sensor technology and the Lorawan communications system. The monitoring, analysis and visualisation of the data was carried out through TRUEWORLD’s powerful environmental software, which thanks to its integration with Blockchain technology can guarantee the integrity and veracity of information from different sources such as weather stations, public entities etc. All through an interactive control panel with real-time data monitoring.
