2008 19 février, Zero carbon Volvo entry, Plans afoot to take Pirates of the Caribbean round the world as the 'Carbon Challenge'
A new 11th hour Volvo Ocean Race campaign has reared its head in the form of the Carbon Challenge Syndicate, headed by ex-Farr and Mascalzone Latino project manager Tom Weaver. By competing in the Volvo Ocean Race, the Carbon Challenge aims to offers global corporations carbon management know-how in 'the Race against Global Warming'. As such, aside from their entry, aboard the former Pirates of the Caribbean, they will be accompanied port to port by a zero-netenergy 'Boathouse'. This is being designed by David Chipperfield, well known for his radical Tracy Island-style Vele et Vents building in Port America's Cup, Valencia. It will serve as a showcase for energy efficiency in buildings and will host a management academy that trains business leaders in carbon management.
