How Can Your Business Achieve Goal 14: Life Below Water?
Updated: Nov 4, 2018
Over the coming weeks, we are celebrating the benefits of the Global Goals in understanding how your business can commit to sustainability. Today, we look at Goal 14: Life Below Water.
Goal 14: Life Below Water aims to ensure the conservation and the sustainable use of our oceans, seas and marine resources.
The impact businesses can have on Goal 14 is very much linked to Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production. By reducing the amount of waste generated and using non-toxic and environmentally-friendly products, businesses can take steps towards ensuring they are reducing the amount of pollutants which make their way to our oceans and seas.
Another way for organisations to work towards the achievement of Goal 14 is by ensuring any caterers used by business source their seafood from sustainable and legal fishing channels.
There are a number of other ways to work towards the achievement of Goal 14 including staff information sessions, staff coastal clean-up days, reducing packaging and getting rid of plastic bags.
Of course, if your organisation is particularly passionate about ensuring the sustainability of our oceans and seas, you can donate profits towards organisations working to tackle these targets sustainably.
