Our goal: organising CO2-neutral and fossil-free events
Oceandiva doesn’t take the planet for granted. We lead the way in ensuring a sustainable future for the event industry. Our goal is to create 100% CO2 neutral and fossil-free events. Our ships already run on special biofuels, we collaborate with durable partners and have reduced our water usage by a great margin. Our new fully electric ship Oceandiva London is already completely CO2 neutral and has received Green Award’s prestigious Gold certificate with a platinum lable. This makes Oceandiva London the very first carbon neutral floating event venue to achieve this feat.
How we’ve drastically cut our fuel usage
As floating event venue there’s no getting around using some sort of fuel. But we can influence the type of fuel we use! Our Dutch, German and Belgium ships all run on an advanced blend with biofuel. Made of 100% certified waste- and residual materials, it has helped us reduce our emissions by 20%. It also greatly reduces the amount of aerial particles for a better quality of air. Our London ship on the other hand is already fully electrical and emission free, and also equipped with a circular waste management system.
Oceandiva exclusively uses biodegradable oil, which reduces oil disposal by 50% in comparison with synthetic oils. To save water toilets are flushed with water from the river – this waste is then stored in tanks which are emptied by a professional waste disposal company.
To reduce our electric footprint we’ve equipped our ships with sustainable LED lighting.
Whenever our ships are docked they exclusively use shore power, a measure meant to relieve the environment which is embraced more and more in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. In London we are now advocating to also create multiple nautical electrical outlets along the Thames river: innovate to inspire others!
Investing in a sustainable future is something we can’t do alone. Which is why we’re so happy to find many other companies that share our goal. Oceandiva very deliberately chooses to collaborate exclusively with event partners and suppliers that share our focus on sustainability. For instance, caterers that show creativity in finding circular food solutions, printers that make flags out of recycled PET bottles and suppliers that transport everything with electric vehicles.
