LIGNIA Wood Company, the manufacturer of the sustainable real-wood alternative to Burmese teak, LIGNIA Yacht, has joined Water Revolution Foundation as a Corporate Partner.
Both organisations have similar aims and objectives to improve the eco-friendly credentials of the yachting industry. Water Revolution Foundation aims to neutralise the footprint of the yachting industry and preserve the world's oceans. It is the first independent, international non-profit organisation that works to drive sustainability within the superyacht industry.
LIGNIA uses sustainably sourced wood from FSC® certified plantations to create LIGNIA Yacht, a beautiful and durable alternative to teak decking. The unique product is created via a timber modification process at LIGNIA’s state-of-the-art plant in Wales. The process results in a real wood product that has the physical properties and appearance of popular hardwoods.
Hans Ng, CEO at LIGNIA Wood Company, said:
“We’re delighted to join and support the Water Revolution Foundation – an organisation that values the importance of sustainability within the superyacht industry. We pride ourselves on using sustainable wood for our products and joining forces with the Foundation highlights the commitment we continue to make to conserving the world’s most precious resources.”
Robert Van Tol, Executive Director at Water Revolution Foundation, said:
“Our Foundation unites leading companies in the superyacht world that are signing up to our mission and are all committed to a better future for everyone. We’re pleased to welcome LIGNIA Yacht on board as a Corporate Partner and look forward to working with them to support change in the superyacht world.”
