Fraser has become the first yachting company in Monaco to sign the official National Pact for Energy Transition with the Monaco Government.
The specially-developed environmental pact, whose participants include top Monaco-based companies and businesses from the Hôtel de Paris to BNP Paribas, was created by the government to improve energy efficiency and promote renewable energy sources in the Principality, with a view to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, by allowing residents, workers, businesses, institutions and associations to contribute to the energy transition effort.
“Fraser has always led the way when it comes to protecting the environment, particularly the oceans that are so vital for our life and work,” said Fraser CEO Raphael Sauleau. “As a team we are committed to encouraging our clients, and our industry, to enjoy the oceans and the wider environment while taking seriously our responsibility to all play our part in protecting it. We are delighted to be the first yachting company to sign this important pact and taking a step further towards a greener planet.”
Fraser is also a supporter of Plastic Oceans, a global non-profit organisation that addresses the plastic pollution issue and how it impacts our waters, sea life and humans.
The company says it will be rolling out various other environmental initiatives over the coming months.

In his first full day in office as President of France, Emmanuel Macron has named the Deputy Mayor of Le Havre, Edouard Philippe, as his prime minister. The 46-year-old new head of government has been a strong supporter of conservative Alain Juppé, but his first foray into politics was as a Socialist. More recently he famously declined to give details of the value of his apartment in Paris and a house in Seine-Maritime. “No idea,” was his answer to enquiries from the High Authority for Transparency in Public Life (HATVP). Born in Rouen to two French teacher parents, Mr Philippe’s credentials as a product of the highest echelons of the Parisian educational system are impeccable. He graduated at Sciences Po-Paris in 1992 and then at ENA, the École nationale d'administration. After working alongside Alain Juppe during the fictitious jobs crisis of 2004, Mr Phillipe joined a law firm. He later became Director of Public Affairs at Areva. His own public political career was launched in June 2010, when he took over from Antoine Rufenacht at the Le Havre town hall. Further appointments by president Macron during the next few days will be watched closely. (Feature image President Macron: Facebook Élysée – Présidence de la République française)
