YKIP has joined World Ocean Council since January 2019.
World Ocean Council is a global, cross-sectoral ocean industry leadership alliance committed to “Corporate Ocean Responsibility”, developed by and for the private sector, with a unique and multi-sectoral approach to address cross-cutting issues affecting ocean sustainable development, science and stewardship of the seas.
Members are from corporations, Industry and Trade Associations, Research, Academic and Scientific Institutions and individuals from around the world.
Vessel emissions are not the only challenge, pollution of our oceans, a critical natural resource, are primarily generated from land-based activities including manufacturing, lifestyle related behaviors or natural disasters. Garbage in the ocean, plastic among the worst, and its impact to the global Eco-system is a shared responsibility of our global society that requires urgent attention.
YKIP is determined to enhance networking with related parties to make a difference and to exemplify leadership in ocean sustainability.
