Environmental Social Governance (ESG)
Electric watercraft offer a range of ESG benefits that make them a more responsible and sustainable mode of water transportation, ensuring our products and mission have a positive impact on the planet for decades to come.
Electric watercraft emit zero emissions, unlike gas-powered boats, reducing their carbon footprint and mitigating the impact of climate change. They don't produce harmful greenhouse gases or pollutants, making them a cleaner option for the environment.
Electric watercraft can provide a quieter and safer mode of water transportation, reducing noise pollution that can affect both people and marine life. By eliminating the need for fuel, they also reduce the risk of spills and accidents that can harm people, wildlife, and the environment.
As governments and regulatory bodies focus on reducing emissions and promoting sustainable practices, electric watercraft can help meet these goals. Additionally, they may be eligible for incentives or subsidies, making them a more attractive option for buyers and manufacturers alike.
Sustainable Development Goals
At Electro Nautic, we are committed to supporting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined by the United Nations. These goals serve as a blueprint for creating a more sustainable and equitable world, and we believe that our commitment to sustainability and innovation can contribute to achieving these goals.
Specifically, we are dedicated to addressing the following eight SDGs
By producing electric boats, we are promoting the use of clean energy and reducing dependence on fossil fuels.
Our commitment to sustainability and innovation creates new opportunities for economic growth and job creation in the green economy.
Our innovative use of natural and recycled materials and efficient manufacturing techniques promotes sustainable practices in the industry.
Our electric boats offer a sustainable mode of water transportation, which can contribute to more sustainable cities and communities.
Our use of natural and recycled materials in our manufacturing process and our commitment to reducing waste and emissions supports responsible consumption and production.
Our electric boats emit zero emissions, which helps mitigate the impacts of climate change.
By reducing marine pollution through sustainable watercraft, we are helping to protect marine life and their habitats.
We believe that collaboration and partnerships are essential for achieving the SDGs, and we are committed to working with other organisations and stakeholders to promote sustainability and innovation.
By addressing these SDGs, we believe that we can make a positive impact on the environment, society, and economy, and contribute to creating a more sustainable and equitable world for future generations.
Scope 1,2 and 3 Emissions
Electric watercraft are good for scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions for several reasons.
Scope 1 Emissions
Electric watercraft do not emit any exhaust gases as they do not burn any fuel. This means that they do not contribute to the scope 1 emissions of their owners or operators.
Scope 2 Emissions
While electric watercraft do require electricity to operate, they can be charged using renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, or hydroelectric power. This means that the indirect emissions associated with their operation, or scope 2 emissions, can be significantly reduced or eliminated entirely.
Scope 3 Emissions
Electric watercraft can also contribute to the reduction of scope 3 emissions. By using electric watercraft instead of traditional watercraft such as jet ski’s, emissions associated with the transportation and production of fossil fuels can be reduced. Additionally, the manufacturing of electric watercraft and their components can be designed to reduce their environmental impact, further reducing scope 3 emissions.
Electric watercraft are a more sustainable alternative to traditional watercraft. Their use can help individuals and companies reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner environment.
Materials and Production
Material selection is a key component of our commitment to reducing emissions and promoting sustainability. At Electro Nautic, we understand that the materials we choose and the way we manufacture our boats can have a significant impact on our carbon footprint.
We use a variety of natural and recycled materials in our manufacturing process, including hemp fibre reinforcing, natural bio-resins, recycled plastic components, and recyclable aluminium extrusions. These materials not only help us reduce our carbon footprint, but they also make our boats more durable, lightweight, and efficient.
Our batteries are designed from first principles to be efficient and have a long useable life. Used batteries are not disposed but are reused and therefore do not go into landfill but can contribute to the circular economy.
We also use modular and efficient manufacturing techniques that allow us to reduce waste and minimise our environmental impact. By designing our boats to be easily disassembled and reassembled, we can reduce our Scope 3 emissions by minimising the need for transportation and reducing waste during the manufacturing process.
We believe that sustainable manufacturing practices are essential for reducing emissions and promoting a cleaner, healthier planet. By prioritising the use of natural and recycled materials and implementing efficient manufacturing techniques, we are doing our part to minimise our impact on the environment while delivering high-quality electric boats to our customers.
