INSPIRING CHANGE FOR THE GOOD OF OUR OCEANS

Uniting the yachting industry behind one common set of goals
and providing a platform to promote the sharing of information
on viable alternatives to single-use plastic

3,200,000

For every 10,000 crew employed an estimated 3.2m plastic water bottles are consumed each year.

2050

By 2050 it is reported that there will be more plastic waste in our oceans than fish.  Nothing but zero plastic waste in our oceans is acceptable.

100 GRAMS

Every 100 wash cycles discharges up to 100g of microplastic waste into the oceans.

Changing Mindsets and Behaviours

Clear Ocean Pact is a non-profit initiative on a mission to change the mindsets and behaviours of people within the superyacht industry for the good of our oceans.

We aim to do this via the PACT – 5 common goals aligning the industry’s efforts to remove its dependency on single-use plastics and eliminate the microplastic pollution that enters our oceans as a direct result of a superyacht’s daily operations. We are also creating a network of knowledge, promoting the free sharing of information on viable alternatives to make these changes as easy as possible to achieve.

We believe that by uniting the efforts of the many behind 5 common goals we can achieve far greater success. The PACT is free to use, voluntary, non-accredited, and designed to support you every step of the way. Join Clear Ocean Pact today by clicking the button below.

Our Targets

To have one thousand superyachts signed up to the PACT by November 2020

To explore, research and promote viable alternatives and economical alternatives to single-use plastic products and practices

To create a network of support and knowledge across the superyacht industry to reduce the consumption of single-use plastics in superyacht operations

To create a framework for reducing the use of single-use plastic items that other industries can adapt and implement

The PACT

5 PLEDGES. ADOPT IN FULL OR IN PART.

Developed to provoke new thinking, create engagement and unite the superyacht industry behind a common set of achievable goals to start making a change from the bottom up.

Aware, Practising or Inspiring. Whatever level of the PACT you can meet, the pledges aim to raise awareness, ignite innovation and engage captains, crew, yacht managers, suppliers, owners and charterers alike to consider their plastic footprint.

What is meant by a “bottom up” approach? Changing mindsets is better achieved when we start with the people responsible for a superyacht’s everyday operations – the crew. It is the crew that will first use new products and practices onboard. So we will start with their reviews and experiences of implementing viable alternatives to single-use plastics and use this to inspire change across the industry, from crews and captains to owners and business leaders.

Together we will lead a global ocean clean-up operation within the industry and beyond, through changing mindsets that will reduce single-use plastic dependency.

Changing Your Industry Mindset

LEAD BY EXAMPLE. Through the Pact we are developing a framework for reducing the use of single-use plastic, to inspire others to follow suit. Create your own PACT and join the growing number of industries leading the change.
