Wood Forever at the Monaco Yacht Show



Within the framework of its “Monaco makes a commitment against deforestation” initiative , the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has launched, during the Monaco Yacht Show, the “Wood forever” project. The Monaco Yacht Show has given a 37,000 euros check to H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco during his visit to the MYS. This donation will be used by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation in order to better educate all those involved in the yachting market, professionals and clients alike, to only use wood certified as originating from sustainably-managed forests.

The “Wood forever” project has been launched during  the 20th edition of the Monaco Yacht Show, thus becoming one of the protagonists in this fight against deforestation.

“Wood Forever” is the catalyst of a movement already adopted on certain construction sites, aiming to link yacht construction and decoration to sustainable forest management, in order to stem and stop deforestation.

Using certified wood means protecting biodiversity and struggling against poverty. The Yachting industry is a great consumer of wood and it must set an example.
