Moving from one year to another, what’s more from a decade to another, is a perfect opportunity to take stock of the past year. What have been ConsultantSeas’s main highlights in 2020? Here is a feedback on a busy year, before moving on to 2020.
Among the main events for us in 2019 is, with no doubt, the signing of the French Pact on Plastic Packaging last February 21st. ConsultantSeas was in charge of ensuring the consultation between all 14 signatories – 11 of the biggest food and beverage companies in France, the French Ministry of Environment, Tara Ocean Foundation and WWF, in partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. We have also coordinated the implementation of the Pact’s engagements in its first year. More information to come on the Pact’s anniversary on Feb. 21st 2020. Stay tuned!
2019 was also the opportunity for ConsultantSeas to work for the first time in the sports event sector, alongside the organizers of the famous sailing race The Ocean Race (former Volvo Ocean Race). We worked together to design and implement their first two Innovation Workshops held in Genoa last September. A public communication on those two events is currently being planned.
The rest of the content of our assignments being confidential, we will stop here for the feedback on our 2019 projects. We are eager to share some results with you, especially regarding the Mediterranean Basin, but patience is the key word here.
Beyond those achievements, ConsultantSeas’ team also grew in 2019. Tatiana Fedotova, Emmanuelle Huet, Sara Traubel et Nicholas Davis joined us as strategic advisor, full time junior consultant, and freelance support respectively. A warm thank you to all of you for your hard-work!
What about 2020 ?
Based on these statements, what are our main perspectives for 2020?
- Pursue and consolidate these outcomes. It is essential for us to implement long-lasting solutions. This is in fact the essence of ‘sustainability’.
- Develop new types of projects, offers and reach out to new industrial sectors concerned with plastic pollution.
- Continue to implement our values – righteousness, sincerity, ethics – and our vision: Innovative solutions and collaborative business models to sustainably protect the ocean from pollution.
A very happy New Year to all of you!
