Facing global challenges for the planet together
Awareness and education

What kind of world do we want to live in? It is to provide a hopeful answer to this question that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the international community in 2015.
The SDGs are 17 global objectives that governments have committed to achieving by 2030. They cover a multitude of areas ranging from protecting the planet to building a more peaceful world, including ensuring that everyone can live in security and dignity.
This roadmap for a better world does not only concern governments: it also calls on companies and all economic actors to mobilize their creativity and capacity for innovation to meet the challenges of sustainable development.
Because the private sector is an engine of economic growth, it has a major role to play in ensuring that this prosperity is truly inclusive, that it benefits the greatest number of people and that it helps protect the resources and health of our planet.
By participating in the fight against ocean plastic pollution, companies contribute to the achievement of several of these Sustainable Development Goals:
- fighting poverty (SDG 1),
- reduce hunger to zero (MDG 2),
- ensure good health and well-being for all (MDG 3),
- improve access to clean water and sanitation (MDG 6),
- increase affordable clean energy (SDG 7),
- create decent work and economic growth (SDG 8),
- reduce inequality (SDG 10),
- consume and produce responsibly (SDG 12),
- combat climate change (SDG 13),
- protect aquatic life (SDG 14).
Fighting against the scourge of plastic pollution, at all levels, is to contribute to the global challenges we face. Joining The SeaCleaners is joining the movement of those who are working for a more sustainable future for all and transforming the world.
