More Plastic Than Fish in Oceans by 2050. Join Our BeakFest to Help!

Plastic pollution is widespread. An estimated 10 million tons of plastic waste is added to the oceans each year; the equivalent of emptying one garbage truck of plastic into the oceans every minute. The situation might get worse: advocate for the circular economy Ellen McArthur predicts that in an unchanged scenario, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by 2050.

How Copenhagen Realizes its Ambitious Climate Goals

As part of their round-the-world sailing trip in search of sustainable solutions, the Sailors for Sustainability visited Copenhagen last summer. The Danish capital has set the ambitious target of becoming CO2-neutral by 2025. This innovative policy objective makes Copenhagen the world’s leading capital city on climate change. Transformations in the construction, transportation and energy sectors will be required, which will not only have positive effects on the environment, but also create business opportunities.

Sailors for Sustainability: Darwin’s Beagle Voyage Inspiration Source

Sailors for Sustainability (SfS) is formed by Dutch sailors Ivar Smits and Floris van Hees who will chronicle their sailing trip around the world in search of sustainable solutions and examples of circular economy thinking. The goal is to inspire their followers with positive cases while raising awareness of the urgency of sustainable change. Using renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy, they will travel sustainably. Finch & Beak is involved as a partner of the project to share the insights gained by SfS to inspire sustainable business transformation.
