The panel of jurors has honored Beneteau with The Boat Industry Brand Annual Award to recognize its contribution to naval industry in China market.

Lagoon Catamarans has been awarded the Environmental Pioneer Annual Award which was a newly set-up for this year in response to the global trend gearing towards a sustainable development. The jurors were deeply impressed by Lagoon Catamarans for its use of new sustainable raw materials. Over the years, the brand has been undertaking various moves in minimizing negative impacts to the marine environment, from sourcing, product design, production to communication activities

In terms of sourcing, the new Lagoon 51 is built using eco-sourced raw materials with wood from FSC-certified forests and the upholstery from recycled materials. The eco-responsible solutions are also available on board thanks to the heavy investment for hybrid propulsion solutions and XXL-sized solar panels on the coachroof of Lagoon 51, delivering almost 3,000 Watts of energy for the onboard service needs. What’s more, green production for Lagoon Catamarans is guaranteed as the two production facilities in France are certified with ISO 9001, ISO 50001 and ISO 14001, ensuring efficient use of energy and careful waste management. When it comes to the communication, the initiative to partner with Escape to Nature and Anima Mundi, who are sharing the same green vision, has revealed the brand’s determination in preserving our dream destinations, a cleaner marine environment, for the next generations. “We would like to thank you so much for this recognition because sustainability is a great cause that Lagoon has been pursuing. We are pushing hard to reduce our footprint on the planet and this award means we are on the right path.” Guillaume ANDREBE, Lagoon Sales Director, Asia Pacific.
