La Ciotat Shipyards have signed on Monday, September 14, 2020 the Water Revolution Foundation’s code of conduct along with MB92 La Ciotat, main company of the yards and partnership of the new shiplift for megayachts.
Both companies therefore commit to respect the ten commitments that, when implemented and adhered to in daily practice, will make a real difference in reducing the environmental footprint of the superyacht industry and preserving oceans and their biodiversity.
“We are very pleased with the partnership with La Ciotat Shipyards, joining a strong group of anchor partners of the foundation [ed. note: 21 companies have already joined the foundation since its creation in november 2018 of which Benetti, Feadship and Lurssen]. In addition to the much appreciated financial and non-financial commitment La Ciotat Shipyards provides to the foundation, their intentions are now also sealed with the signing of the Code of Conduct. We’re already working on effective implementation of the shared ambitions and turn these into forward-thinking programmes that will also be able to serve as a template for similar companies and “clusters” in the industry. That is the essence of our Foundation and will only be possible with the strong commitment of industry companies and true collaborative approach.” States Robert van Tool, Executive Director of the Foundation.
This event is an opportunity for LCS to demonstrate its long-running commitment to a global approach to sustainable development, for which they have already launched several concrete actions and which they look forward to continuing and accelerate as part of the recovery plan announced in last July by the French government. For Jean-Yves Saussol, CEO of LCS, “We are only at the beginning of this story and La Ciotat Shipyards have the ambition to spearhead the construction of this long term sustainable industry, for the environement and for people who live in it.”
