Fishing boat builder pledges to become carbon neutral by 2025
Correct Craft, the owner of fishing boat brands that includes BassCat and Yar-Craft, has pledged to become carbon neutral by 2025.
The oldest family-owned and operated boat building company in the world describes the goal as ‘sizable’, but said it will approach it by investing in long-term solutions to lower carbon emissions. The company has been working on identifying how much total carbon it emits and the sources of the emissions across its locations in the US.
Alongside this, the group is reviewing catalytic recipes that make its already highly efficient systems even better. “Our innovation team is already producing zero emission electric boats that are sold around the world,” it says.
Bill Yeargin (above), President and CEO of Correct Craft, added: “Our team wants to be a good steward of our natural resources and keep the outdoors beautiful for generations that follow us. Becoming carbon neutral is something that is a substantial goal and will take investment, but the returns for the environment will be worth it. We have a long way to go, but have been learning a great deal throughout this process and look forward to revealing what we have discovered. Very soon I shall be sharing more details about our process and we hope that, by being transparent on our carbon neutral journey, it will inspire others to join us.”
