Environmental Training for Yacht Crew

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

For several years, architects and engineers have been able to find technological solutions to make yachts less polluting.Despite this fact, behaviours onboard havn’t evolved, it is crucial that we do change our work methods onboard. 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 high quality that service we provide in luxury yachting.

For these reasons, 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 for improvement.

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 participant and partner, 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 2019 Monaco Yacht Show.

Following the Monaco 2019 Startup Week-End, the ETYC team, 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 2nd prize and later, AWARE would become ETYC.

About us…

ETYC
CLAIRE FERANDIER-SICARD
  • Founder of ETYC
  • Degree in psychology
  • Chief Stewardess from 2015
  • Trained to implement the ISO14001 Standard

My experience onboard 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 product management. This is everyday life for any crew: plastic bottles, caps in aluminium, chemical detergents… In short, onboard the majority of crew members are not able to work as sustainable or as eco-friendly as their potential because we lack the resources. This is why I created ETYC. To provide the right tools to the right people.
