AET colleagues and their families across our offices in the US, the UK, Singapore and Brazil recently volunteered in our annual beach clean-up. Aside from helping to remove trash and marine debris from coastal shorelines, our beach clean-ups promote awareness among our staff to become more conscious of their overall consumption while encouraging them and the communities we live in to act responsibly.
In total, an estimate of 178kg of trash was collected including single-use plastics, foam pieces, masks, gloves, cigarette butts, fishing lines, nets and many more.
This initiative forms an integral part of our sustainability strategy as it marks our commitment to care for the environment and supports the UN Sustainable Development Goal 14 – Life Below Water which we subscribe to.
