AerOceaNetwork, the global logistics networking leader, has joined forces with social enterprise Oceans Integrity in response to their deep concerns for the ocean’s well-being. Oceans Integrity is a dedicated organization committed to addressing the issue of plastic pollution in our oceans. AON Logistics’ networks are the preferred choice for logistics companies who would join in aiming to enhance their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) scores and fulfill their corporate social responsibility (CSR) targets.
This charitable partnership aims to harness the expansive international networks of AON and the innovative plastic collection operations of Oceans Integrity to develop a comprehensive solution for combating plastic pollution. Working in unison, these two organizations will raise awareness about the pressing issue and inspire other logistics companies to embrace sustainable practices in order to reverse the damage pollution leaves in our oceans.
Oceans Integrity’s approach to tackling ocean pollution goes beyond environmental impact, as it also generates a positive social change. The organization employs indigenous fishermen to collect and sort plastic, providing them with a sustainable income and working towards closing the wealth gap. Furthermore, their collection operation ensures full traceability and transparency, granting clients access to audited and recorded data to prevent any possibility of greenwashing.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Oceans Integrity in addressing one of the most urgent environmental challenges of our time,” said Daniel Bateman, Director of AON. “As a global leader in business-to-business networking for the logistics industry, we are deeply committed to sustainability and minimizing damage of pollution to our oceans. Our partnership with Ocean Integrity aligns perfectly with our mission to build a more sustainable future for the seas.”
Kieran Kelly, Founder and CEO of Oceans Integrity, added, “Our partnership with AON represents a significant stride towards reducing plastic pollution in our oceans. Together, we have the power to make a tangible impact while simultaneously providing sustainable livelihoods for indigenous communities. We take great pride in working alongside AON to drive transformative change and create a cleaner, more sustainable future.”
The collaboration between AON and Oceans Integrity exemplifies the strength of collective action in addressing complex global challenges. Together, they are at the forefront of forging a more sustainable future for the logistics industry and beyond.
