Clear Ocean Pact wins eco-champion award!
Clear Ocean Pact has been awarded a P.E.A Award in recognition of our work pioneering change for the good of our oceans.
On 13th November 2019, The Clear Ocean Pact team was presented with the P.E.A (People. Environment. Achievement.) Award in the travel category, at an immersive green-carpet event on London’s Greenwich Peninsula.
We joined pioneering individuals and teams – in sectors ranging from Energy, Food and Health to Money and the Arts – who are exploring, researching and implementing alternatives to encourage change and inspire more eco-conscious choices in their chosen fields.
Clear Ocean Pact were commended for their work in creating the PACT – 5 common goals aligning the yachting industry’s efforts to remove its dependency on single-use plastics and to eliminate the microplastic pollution that enters our oceans as a direct result of a superyacht’s daily operations.
We were also praised for our work in creating a network of knowledge across the yachting industry, promoting the free sharing of information on viable alternatives to make these changes as easy as possible to achieve, and to get crew thinking more creatively about how they approach plastic alternatives. To date, we have had more than 60 yachts sign up to the PACT, totalling some 22,000 gross tonnage (GT) and over 700 crew that are now actively seeking ways to reduce their single-use plastic consumption.
This award also marks a year since Clear Ocean Pact launched and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate this next phase in our journey. The message that has underlined the P.E.A. Awards for nine years is this: every individual has the power to make a difference. We embrace this message wholeheartedly and encourage individuals and crews across the superyacht industry to get involved and help us make a difference.
By better supporting, organising, and building on the increasing dedication across the superyacht industry, we are creating a more sustainable future for generations to come.
