Yacht Carbon Offset, provider of a fully-documented service for those who own and enjoy the world’s leading superyachts, has announced the appointment of Rachel Goult as the company’s new Managing Director with immediate effect.
Rachel will work alongside the company’s founder Mark Robinson, who now has other professional responsibilities but who will remain engaged with the strategic development of the business. Rachel and Mark share an enthusiasm for offering the yachting community an effective way to counteract the greenhouse gas impact of these spectacular vessels.
Rachel, whose career as a Director and Lead Analyst at the credit rating agency S&P Global Ratings focused on infrastructure and renewable energy projects, said: “It is a great time to be joining Yacht Carbon Offset, with such a high level of attention on the need for action on climate change and protection of the marine environment. I can already see a strong ambition amongst yachting professionals to improve sustainability. I am looking forward enormously to leading Yacht Carbon Offset on the next stage of its growth and development.”
Mark Robinson added: “The growth of the business, as more and more yachts choose to counteract their greenhouse gas impact, has meant that, for some time now, there has been a need to strengthen our team. As a company, we greatly appreciate our clients’ choice to participate in this discretionary service and we know that we have work to do to build awareness and extend this participation further.
“I am delighted therefore to introduce Rachel, who brings to the table management and organisational skills as well as industry expertise in carbon offset projects, so essential to this specialised environmental service. Rachel and the team can now build upon the proven processes we have established since 2008 and begin the next phase of Yacht Carbon Offset’s development.”
