World Oceans Day, 8th June.
This is a day to celebrate the ocean and to raise awareness about ethical and sustainable ways to use its resources. The theme for World Oceans Day 2022 is “Life and livelihoods: ethical and sustainable ways to use the ocean’s resources.”
According to the United Nations, the ocean covers over 70% of the planet and is vital to our survival. It produces at least 50% of the planet’s oxygen and is home to most of the earth’s biodiversity.
When it comes to our food chain, it is the main source of protein for more than a billion people around the world. The ocean is also key to our economy with an estimated 40 million people being employed by ocean-based industries by 2030.
United Nations World Oceans Day 2022 on is the first-ever hybrid celebration of the annual event, featuring both in-person programming hosted at UN HQ in NYC and virtual components for global public accessibility.
We fully support the work of the United Nations Environment Programme and regularly follow their updates. As a business we are committed to more sustainable business practises and we encourage our clients to consider more eco-friendly packaging and logistics solutions and we can offer guidance and support.
