Land Rover BAR
Earth to Ocean is currently working with Land Rover BAR to ensure that their America’s Cup campaign is as sustainable as it can be. Our main focus is the construction and use of the new team base in Portsmouth, we are aiming to make these headquarters a showcase of how well a building can perform, even with extremely demanding activities taking place within it. The base will be home to the designers, engineers, manufacturers and support staff and is where all manufacturing of boats will occur. We are planning to use innovative technology to reduce the carbon footprint of the campaign, whether this be through effective waste management or using less fuel in support boats.
Golf Environment Organisation
The Golf Environment Organisation(GEO) is an international, non-profit making initiative who help the golf industry to deliver environmental protection and enhancement alongside corporate responsibility. We worked with GEO to ensure that the high profile European Tour golfing events are sustainable and present an excellent environmental image to their spectators and sponsors. Our work extends through the complex tasks of carbon foot printing, waste management, site and habitat protection, environmental legislation and post event reporting, with a focus on working with suppliers and contractors to ensure they share our vision. Events we have worked with recently include the Ryder Cup for which we have produced numerous policies and detailed documents including their Sustainable Procurement Policy and Site Protection Plan.
London 2012 - LOCOG
Earth to Ocean was an integral part of the the award-winning LOCOG sustainability team from February to December 2012. At the bid stage, LOCOG made a series of sustainability commitments that once selected as the Olympic and Paralympic host city they were publicly accountable for the delivery of. We supported the organisation both in venue development and event management to ensure these commitments were embedded into the operation of the Games at all stages. With a particular focus on re-use of overlay waste and on energy management, we worked across a wide variety of Games venues, from the entirely temporary greenfield sites (many in very sensitive venues) to iconic, pre-existing venues such as Wembley Stadium and Wimbledon. We helped LOCOG achieve a number of key targets such as zero notifiable incidents, a 20% energy saving and reuse and recycling levels of over 98% during the venue development.
Navitus Bay Wind Park
Navitus Bay is a proposed offshore wind farm off the Dorset coast. Good consultation with stakeholders will be essential to a successful consenting process.

SLS - The Nothe Spectator Facility
SLS were contracted by LOCOG to provide the Nothe Spectator Facility at Weymouth during the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

Earth to Ocean provided SLS with this resource, including developing their Environmental Management Plan.
Royal Yachting Association
As a National Governing Body, the RYA undertakes a variety of functions. Whether developing advisory services for members and clubs, sharing best practice, or to meet funding goals they often have the need for short term additional capacity.
Having worked directly for the RYA for many years, we understand what they need to deliver and have been able to provide these services. We have coordinated and written their Facilities Strategy, provided the technical editor for their "Go Green" book and formulated a number of responses to Government policy that affects recreational boating.
The British America's Cup team, TEAMORIGIN developed 'Race for Change' so as to stand out from other America's Cup teams. They partnered with the Carbon Trust to deliver their 'Race for Change' programme. Rapidly, they realised the complexity of embedding good carbon management into a sports team and took on Earth to Ocean to assist in both developing the strategy, establishing an action plan and implementing the programme across their events, boat build and operational management. During the programme, we developed as a baseline a carbon footprint of the team's operation, including the boat build, enabling us to embed carbon saving strategies across their activities.
The Green Blue
Having initiated, designed and set up the Green Blue environmental programme for the RYA and the British Marine Federation in 2005, we have continued to work closely with this project and have researched and written a number of key products and documents for them including the Green Marinas Guide and the Green Guide for Clubs.
