The Yacht Week - Croatia
Developed initial “Green Transition Strategy” and performed our pilot Material Flow Analysis to measure The Yacht Week’s biggest environmental impacts.
From this, we created a campaign with Croatian ex-navy divers, who participated in an underwater dive to recover 1 metric ton of trash picked up from the sea floor.
A co-branded video was made for their social media platform, which went viral with 100,000 views.
Their sustainability efforts were validated by their guests, whose comments excitedly supported their interest in sustainability and marine conservation.
Boat Bike Tours
Sea Going Green signed Boat Bike Tours as recurring clients to complete our full “Green Transition Strategy”.
A pilot project was completed with 3 ships from their fleet to assess their environmental impact by ship size.
For the next step in our custom strategy, we conducted a full CO2 footprint and material flow analysis to establish a baseline for their entire fleet’s operations.
Having standardized data for the fleet, we are now continuing to work with them to conduct yearly analyses to help them reach their milestone of CO2-neutrality by 2022.
Ally Dragozet, founder and CEO, led the Young Professionals Day workshop held as a part of the annual HISWA Boat Show at RAI Amsterdam Convention Center.
The presentation and workshop highlighted the need to spread awareness for sustainability in water sports and interactions with the marine environment. This involved an interactive group brainstorming session for aspiring talents to conceptualize the sustainable technologies of tomorrow.
The Sea Going Green team took part in the exposition and invited interested ship owners and boat enthusiasts to provide valuable market research for the prototype of our api, Econavis.
The concept, API framework and initial prototype for Econavis was created by CEO, Ally Dragozet, built upon her expertise in GIS mapping.
The idea of Econavis is to provide real-time notifications integrated into marine navigation systems with data on life below water. Notifications include alerts on marine protected areas, endangered species and other important layers to ensure that captains navigate the seas sustainably with ease.
The idea was first backed by a take-off grant by the NWO (Netherlands Institute for Scientific Research) and is now looking to scale into a testable prototype.
Sea Going Green together with WWF-NL designed a 10 part workshop series and mentorship program to inspire select local community leaders to create their own grassroots organization to tackle the biggest sustainability challenges on the island of Bonaire under the umbrella of the 2030 UN Sustainability Goals.
Jamaica Inter-American Development Bank
Sea Going Green consultants took the lead in carrying out a Competitiveness and Strategy Analysis for 7 destinations on the island of Jamaica.
Sea Going Green’s involvement in the project will be used by the IADB to inform a larger strategy on inclusive community development and cultural heritage integration into the Jamaican tourism sector and future development plans.
Sea Going Green is working together with three research institutes (Breda University of Applied Sciences, Avans University of Applied Sciences & Wageningen Environmental Research), and partners in the field like Green Destinations and TUI BeNeLux (and more) to build a tool for the purpose of lowering the barriers for destinations to participate in Award & Certification schemes, which require measuring and monitoring of sustainability data.
The tool is expected to lessen the work for destination managers to take part in these types of award schemes; enable destinations to compare their performance with other destinations through (benchmarking) and add to their knowledge on the expanded topics that will be covered in the newly improved data gathering process.
We actively participate in tourism industry events to further the conversation about sustainable tourism by sharing our knowledge and experience. Using her expertise, Ally (CEO & Founder) is able to ANVR Sustainability Day
