At Oceans4Life we believe businesses of all sizes have an important role to play in changing the ‘norm’,  and the tide is already turning. For many businesses, single-use plastic is easily avoidable, but due to lack of information we often struggle to see this. There are plenty of simple reusable substitutions that can both eliminate the plastic you use in your business and the plastic you provide to customers. 

Empowering Local Businesses for Ocean Conservation in Gran Canaria

We are only just beginning to understand the repercussions of today’s throwaway society and its impact on the environment and human health. If we continue this way, it’s estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish.

Our program for companies and organizations in Gran Canaria aims to drive sustainable practices, mitigate ecological threats, and foster collective responsibility for the long-term health of the oceans.

Here are some benefits of integrating eco-responsible programs for companies:

  • Companies that prioritize social responsibility can boost customer loyalty by 5% to 9%, according to the Reputation Institute. Collaborating with environmental protection initiatives can create an emotional bond with customers, leading to a favorable brand perception, heightened consumer preference, and a competitive edge.

  • Engaging in sustainability initiatives can enhance internal unity and corporate image, as well as draw in individuals dedicated to social and environmental issues. Research from Deloitte shows that 61% of millennials view sustainability as a crucial aspect in selecting an employer. The integration of sustainable measures can appeal to committed staff, enhance talent retention, and foster a more favorable workplace atmosphere.

  • Incorporating sustainable practices can lead to substantial long-term cost savings. Research from the Carbon Trust suggests that businesses can reduce operating expenses by as much as 20% through the adoption of sustainable measures. Moreover, a dedication to social responsibility can improve opportunities for accessing favorable financing.

  • Incorporating environmental protection efforts not only helps companies comply with current regulations, but also readies them to foresee upcoming regulatory shifts. According to a report by McKinsey, companies that prioritize sustainability are more equipped to adjust to new regulations, thereby minimizing the risk of adverse operational effects and sidestepping potential penalties. Additionally, a proactive dedication to sustainability can play a significant role in gaining access to government initiatives and tax incentives.
