MarineShift360 is a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) sustainability tool designed by marine industry experts for marine designers, manufacturers, boat builders and engineers. It has been developed in collaboration with 11th Hour Racing as the Founding Sponsor and Anthesis Group, the global leader in driving sustainable performance.
The web-based application is intuitive and easy to use, enabling marine businesses to fully understand the environmental footprint of products and processes by quickly assessing their impact, whether individual marine components or a whole yacht. By identifying efficiencies, the LCA tool allows users to reduce environmental impact and costs without compromising performance, all at the touch of a button.
MarineShift360 is a partnership-driven international collaboration that was developed to drive positive, sustainable changes in design and manufacturing in the marine industry. The goal is to enable a marine industry that fully understands the environmental footprint of its products and is empowered to make a measurable shift from a linear to a circular economy.
“This is a pioneering project for the industry, and we have welcomed supporting 11th Hour Racing. Until now, such a comprehensive LCA tool has not been accessible in the marine industry due to the specialist skills and complexities needed to conduct and interpret an analysis. MarineShift360 will be such an important tool to progress long-term sustainability goals across the whole industry and will allow businesses to drive innovations and make informed, environmentally and economically sustainable decisions that will see companies stand out in the sector.”

If we can’t measure it, we can’t manage it.
- Select your material types and volumes and pick your processes from a database of over 200 entries that contain environmental footprints based on 30 years of boat building experience.
- Quickly assess and compare parts based on environmental footprint, not only during manufacture, but over every step of the component’s lifespan.
- Adjust inputs as necessary, take measures to reduce impacts, and make informed decisions at design stage
