BY BRINGING TOGETHER AROUND A LABEL
USERS AND PROTECTORS OF THE MARINE WORLD

We consider the Ocean as a beauty, a resource, an attractiveness, but what are we doing to maintain this resource so important for humanity? 

By joining the label, each label holder undertakes to respect the Ocean charter, particularly in terms of transparency with its customers, for whom the Ocean represents an attraction or a core activity, and to pay a symbolic share of its income to finance the preservation of marine resources.

A small individual gesture for a community effect in the service of the Ocean.

OUR MISSION

GET COMPANIES TO LIMIT THE IMPACT AND COLLECT AND DONATE A SHARE OF THE REVENUES FOR THE PRESERVATION OF THE OCEAN

By adhering to the label, each labelled person undertakes to comply with the Ocean Charter, in particular in transparency with its customers, for whom the Ocean represents an attractiveness or a core activity, to collect and donate a symbolic part of its income to finance the preservation of marine resources.

A small individual gesture for a community effect in the service of the Ocean.

The Engaged For Ocean® label is in line with 9 of our 17 objectives
sustainable development.
A global mission to secure our common future.

The ocean is omnipresent

More than 3.5 billion human beings live on its resources, as multiple and diverse as they are, its economic value is estimated at 24,000 billion US dollars(Source: WWF), 90% of the world's transport is maritime, more than 25 million citizens take a tourist cruise each year, maritime tourism concerns more than one billion human beings each year.

We breathe oxygen produced at 70% by the ocean, 2/3 of CO2 emissions are captured by it, 90 million tons of marine food resources are fished each year, 18 million of which will be used to produce meal for aquaculture, a heresy.

We must all act

This resource, in addition to its beauty and the inestimable value of its biodiversity, is the foundation of our economy and our civilization. If a paradigm shift is necessary, we must accompany this transition and take our responsibilities to preserve and maintain the Ocean, together.

The "Engaged For Ocean" label allows you to become an actor, in a coherent context and while creating a committed and sustainable relationship with customers and partners.

A necessity for all of us and our future.

PRESS COVERAGE:

"At the heart of our planet's climatic mechanics, the ocean holds an essential place; it is the true regulator of the climate and of life, but also of our entire civilization. More brutally than ever, our planet is being affected and the increase in intensity of all the climatic phenomena that are usually stable or non-existent attest almost daily to this absolute urgency.

We all have a stake in this and must all participate in preserving our future."

The "Engaged For Ocean" label is first and foremost a mark of trust, focused on the common good and sustainability. The label is awarded on the basis of a sworn declaration and an on-site visit.

The elements of the label allow all customers, teams and others to discover the reasons for the label via a dedicated mobile application available on all stores ("Engaged For Ocean" - free on Android® and iOS)

This application also enables everyone to report any malfunctions that run counter to the commitments of the Ocean Charter. It is on the basis of these declarations (which must be documented) that we will carry out control audits, issue warnings and, if necessary, disqualify.

The commitment to donate a tiny part of the revenues to the preservation of marine resources has been defined in such a way as to be simple from all points of view, via a semi-annual payment of the sums collected.

Each labelled recipient receives a reminder message of the payment dates, which are made by bank transfer and are accompanied by an annual tax receipt.

Membership in the "Engaged For Ocean" label and its commitments are made on a basis of mutual trust.
