Complementing our mission to improve the safety and environmental sustainability of the maritime industry, RightShip is a proud carbon-neutral organisation.Read More
Being carbon-neutral involves purchasing carbon credits to offset the emissions associated with the business operation of our three global offices, including international flights and employee travel to and from work.
It was estimated that the net total carbon emissions for RightShip during 2016 / 2017 was 951 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (tCO2-e)1, which were offset to support the Lavers Hill Conservation efforts in the Great Otway National Park, Australia.
Through the carbon offset program, RightShip is upholding its commitment to provide leadership in environmental sustainability to the international shipping industry.

RightShip provides carbon offset sponsorship of selected maritime industry events, working with organisers to take responsibility for emissions associated with the event and to lead in climate change action.
The carbon footprint of the event is estimated, taking into consideration the number of attendees, the location and length of the event,and the accommodation and travel requirements of the delegates.
RightShip then purchases the required number of carbon offset credits to make the event carbon-neutral. A carbon offset certificate is awarded to the conference, highlighting the commitment of both RightShip and the organisers to compensate for the environmental impact of their event.
