Environmental and Social Claims
- For resource conservation, we have installed a solar thermal system which heats more than enough water on board, during sunny days. We are also planning a solar system to generate electricity, while our current oil heating system will soon be replaced by a heat pump or hydrogen heating.
- Since 2008, from every booking, we donate a fixed amount to a charity of our choice, which is picked yearly. Currently we are helping an adult education project in South Africa which Capt´n Edgar knows personally.
- Since 2010, we´ve also been supporting the TARGET e.V. Projekt organised by the German human rights activist Rüdiger Nehberg. The main objective of this organisation is to end female genital mutilation in Ethiopia and Mauritius. This is a project we really want to help, and 10c per booked room per day goes to this project. Which reaches up to 1450€ per year.
