The world's first 100% CO2-neutral floating event venue is coming to London (expected end 2020). It will be powered by electricity and it will use a circular waste management system. The arrival of the new ship represents a significant step in the right direction.
In addition to the arrival of the carbon neutral ship, GoodFuels and VARO Energy have been providing advanced biofuels for the rest of the fleet. This biofuel is made from 100% certified waste or residual flows and ensures a standard carbon reduction. By sailing on biofuel, less particulate matter and nitrogen particles are emitted into the air, improving air quality. The first steps towards CO2-neutral and fossil-free events have thus been taken.

As the organizer of an event, you too can contribute to a more sustainable event. If you choose for OCEANDIVA you are choosing for a more sustainable future. Our goal is to organize carbon neutral and fossil-free events within a few years. We still have to take many steps to get there, but fortunately there are many other companies that invest in sustainability with us. We therefore enter into a partnership with as many of these companies as possible. In this way we continue to build a more sustainable future.
In addition to the CO2-neutral event ship that goes to London and the biological fuel that the rest of the fleet sails on, we are also taking the following steps in the right direction.
We use biodegradable oil. This reduces the oil drain with 50% relative to synthetic oil.
To save water, the toilets are rinsed with river water. Once the water has served its purpose, it goes to designated tanks that will be picked up by a waste processing company.
Reducing food waste
Reducing food waste during events is a major priority for us. Together with our catering partners, we try to tune catering as closely as possible to the number of guests and we encourage giving away leftovers to organizations who benefit.
Once moored, the ships are, if available, connected to shore power. ?At their home port, the ships are continually connected to shore power: an environmentally-friendly measure that is increasingly being applied by governments in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
OCEANDIVA finds it very important to make a contribution to social goals. We do this through donations, sponsorship and voluntary work. For example, Managing Director Mandy Berding once locked herself up for Free a Girl. An emergency aid organization that works to free young girls from forced prostitution. OCEANDIVA also supports Noordje, a non-profit organization that organizes art and language projects at school for children from 6-18 years in Amsterdam Noord.
