Enhancing Your Company’s ESG and CSR Journey with the CARE Program

Our multi-tiered program offers a structured path for engagement, with each level building upon the last, ensuring a cumulative impact that aligns with your sustainability goals and ambitions.

Tailored reports and documentation reflecting your membership and involvement will showcase precise statistics on your corporate impact, detailing the amount of plastics removed from the sea, the extent of beachline cleaned based on your contribution, and other KPIs.

The CARE program is tightly aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
