The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has introduced a program to encourage the builders of the world’s largest yachts to use timber from sustainably managed forests.

Entitled the, "Wood Forever" program, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco unveiled the project to the media during this week’s Monaco Yacht Show, a gathering of luxury sailing charter vessels, new builds and glamorous motoryachts from the Mediterranean yacht charter market.

Membership in the Wood Forever program represents a conscious step towards environmental and social responsibility.

During a brief press conference and ceremony on September 23rd, the Prince recognized Burger Boat as the first official Wood Forever member. Burger signed an agreement to analyze their wood supply chain, and committed to develop a sustainable wood purchasing policy to fight deforestation.

His Serene Highness is hopeful other yacht builders will follow Burger’s example in order to drive the yachting industry towards environmental excellence.
