Environmental Training for Yacht Crew

ETYC is the first company offering training, audit and consulting to yacht crew, to implement best practice to protect the environment.

If for several years, architects and engineers have been able to find technological solutions to make yachts less polluting, behaviour on board hasn’t evolved, yet it is crucial to act. A recent WWF study shows that the Mediterranean is the most polluted sea in the world, carrying 4 times more waste than the 7th continent made of plastic.

Inspired on the ISO14001 standard, ETYC is offering solutions aiming at implementing Environmental Management Systems (EMS) and developing proposals to improve environmental performance on board yachts. The challenge is significant because these objectives must not jeopardise the quality of the high-end service that is specific to luxury yachting.

To that end, ETYC offers a range of trainings and audits that allow crew to take the right measures and significantly reduce their impact on the environment. By the end of our training, the crew is autonomous and able to independently identify areas forimprovement.

ETYC

COACHING OR CASE STUDY

The COACHING includes a documented study, an on-board inspection and a behavioural analysis of each of the parties involved.

  • It is personalised, takes into consideration the requests and requirements of the ship owner and/or the captain according to budget and expectations.
  • The follow up inspection is customisable according to the needs.
  • The price is based on an estimate, and includes 1 day of coaching on board the boat, 1/2 day of audit + support over time.

SUPPORT

Our support takes into consideration technological developments, changes in behaviour and new requirements. It ensures that the efficiency of the action plan established is optimised. It evaluates if the measures recommended in the action plan are applied on a daily basis, and to what extent. It also contributes to ensuring a high level of motivation from the crew.

Our audience

img_public_ok
  • Yachting professionals who wish to add an additional qualification to their skillset, and so positioning themselves on the market as responsible actors.
  • Owners who are conscious of their responsibilities and want their crew to be perfectly trained. That which is no longer tolerated ashore should no longer be tolerated at sea.

Our latest news

Our training sessions are offered at the Belle Classe Academy of the Yacht Club of Monaco. Their hospitality, their facilities as well as their continued involvement in the protection of the environment have made them an exceptional player, completely in line with our training programmes.

ETYC was invited to join the instructors to present our innovative and unique training to a panel of professionals from the yachting industry, during the 23rd Captain’s Forum at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019.

Following the Monaco 2019 Startup Week-End, the ETYC team, encouraged by Sebastien Nave, decided to take up the challenge of participating in the prestigious 2019 Business Creation Competition. ETYC was the lucky winner of the Monaco JCE Prize.

It all started when Claire signed up for this contest on her own, with her idea. There, she would meet the members of her future team and with them, she created AWARE. Together, they won the 2nd prize of the contest. Later, AWARE would become ETYC.

About us…

ETYC
CLAIRE FERANDIER-SICARD
  • Founder of ETYC
  • Degree in psychology
  • Over 6 years of experience as Chief Stewardess
  • Trained to implement the ISO14001 Standard

My experience aboard yachts made me aware of this challenging situation. For several years, I was responsible for the well-being of the guests on board and I experienced issues with waste management, space constraints and disposable products management. This is the everyday life of any crew: plastic bottles, caps in aluminium, chemical detergents… In short, on board we all work the same way because we don’t have the tools and techniques to do better.
