At the 20th Monaco Yacht Show, a small but determined minority of yachts were flying the green flag as the ever expanding fleet of mega yachts seeks to reduce its carbon footprint.

The four-day show that opened Wednesday attracted a turnout of 100 superyachts. The newly-launched sea-giant — Exuma won the Green Plus Yacht Award 2010.

The principle of offsetting is straightforward: a yacht’s greenhouse gas emissions are quantified and then balanced by equivalent emissions reductions from carefully-selected green energy projects around the world.
