SUSTAINABILITY WORK CONTRIBUTES TO
Each year around 8 million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean, plastic that doesn't disappear. This has serious consequences for animals, nature and even us humans. Ocean litter is one of the greatest environmental problems and to help raise awareness Concordia Maritime organised, for the second time, a beach clean-up in the Gothenburg archipelago.
The activity is a part of the company’s sustainability efforts and stems from its partnership with the organisation Keep Sweden Clean. This time the participants included the sailing club GKSS, Sjöräddningssällskapet (Swedish Sea Rescue Society) and the floorball club Särö Seahawks.
Over a hundred people showed up and engagement was high. Young people, families, neighbours and employees all helped clear the beach of plastic packaging and bags, petrol cans, old fishing nets and more. All plastic was sorted to be used in the Swedish Sea Rescue Society’s project Dinghies for the Sea, where plastic is upcycled to build dinghies.
