Venture Cup goes Carbon Neutral
CNI UK the trading subsidiary of Eligere Investments Plc (ELI) is pleased to announce a partnership with
the Venture Offshore Cup to make this ground-breaking event carbon neutral in its inaugural year.
Racing from central London to Poole Harbour via the Channel Islands and Northern France, at all times
organisers were conscious of its impact; setting up comprehensive monitoring systems; working with leading
academics, environmentalists and institutes; encouraging efficient use of materials in the design of boats;
promoting new engine designs with innovative clean technology; and sharing all learning along the way
In line with the social responsibility ethos of technological development and environmental sustainability
the Venture Cup partnered with CNI to offset the greenhouse gas emissions of the powerboats and race crews
taking part in the event.
Their decision to offset the race emissions goes to show that fans of high octane pursuits can also be
leaders in the race for a cleaner, greener future and CNI is committed to work further with the Venture Cup
team to ensure environmental benefits are extended to the next event, scheduled to run from Cowes to Monte
Carlo in June 2014.
