La Poste Groupe: Commitment to the protection of oceans and rivers
Every year, 12 million tons of plastic are washed into the ocean, the equivalent of one waste truck every minute. To tackle this problem, La Poste and the association The SeaCleaners have joined forces. They aim to act in favour of preserving aquatic ecosystems and to fight against plastic pollution.
La Poste is therefore encouraging its employees to participate in clean-up operations lead by The SeaCleaners teams on the coastline and near French waterways. The company intend to mobilise its employees to collect as much waste as possible. La Poste will also use the association’s advice to reduce its consumption of plastic in industrial processes, thus making its supply chain more sustainable and lowering its environmental footprint.
RESULTS and IMPACT
15 massive actions is led in all French regions. Postal employees will also be informed of environmental issues throughout the year thanks to online and paper internal communication as well as dedicated webinars.
