IYC is pleased to announce its partnership with Common Seas, a UK-headquartered non-profit enterprise on a mission to quickly and significantly reduce the amount of plastic produced and stop it polluting our beaches, seas and bodies.
Common Seas focuses on influencing plastic policy nationally and internationally, as well as working with businesses and governments on a practical level to reduce plastic use. The organization has created PlasTICK, the only digital solution on the market to help companies to measure their plastic consumption and implement tailored plastic reduction strategies.
IYC is committed to upholding its responsibility as an environmentally conscious company and is taking the necessary steps to increase sustainability in company operations, promote best practices across yachts in its fleet and raise awareness throughout its network. The company will work collaboratively with Common Seas to raise awareness of their initiatives and support fundraising efforts. IYC will also be actively participating in Common Seas’ activations.
Jo Royle, Founder and CEO of Common Seas, said: “I am delighted to partner with IYC on our mission to reduce plastic pollution. Seeing the devastating effects of plastic in our oceans as a professional skipper was what spurred me to take action and found Common Seas, so I know IYC and its clients around the world will be passionate about tackling this issue. I look forward to working together to drive positive change.”
“The reward of spending time on the water comes hand-in-hand with the responsibility of playing our part in protecting our marine environment. I strongly believe in Common Seas’ mission, and I look forward to working closely together to help further advance their initiatives” said Raphael Sauelau, IYC’s CEO.
