Clean Ocean Goal

The ocean covers 70% of the planet's surface. It is a wonderful space of freedom and escape, but above all it is a major player in the regulation of our planet. However, the latest international reports (IPCC) draw up an alarming report on its state of health.

Faced with the urgency of the situation, the Kresk Group and its cosmetic brands (SVR, Lazartigue and FILLMED) wanted to get involved by creating the KRESK 4 OCEANS Endowment Fund. Our ambition: to contribute to the Decade of the Oceans launched by the United Nations for the period 2021-2030, by targeting challenge No. 1: to understand and combat marine pollution for a CLEAN OCEAN.

Pollution of all kinds invades the seabed, but the most worrying of all is pollution from plastic origin. Fragmented into micro-particles, it insinuates itself into all living organisms with real consequences on health. Protecting the sea from these microplastics is to protect humanity and the entire biodiversity of our planet.

To reduce marine pollution and in particular plastic pollution, KRESK 4 OCEANS targets 3 major issues :

Acting onshore

Understanding at sea

More than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into the oceans every year, that's 400 kg per second.

Our priority is to stem the flow of plastic to the ocean, by supporting innovative solutions from design to end-of-life.

Even if no more plastic were to end-up in the ocean, the number of microplastics is expected to double by 2050*.

A better understanding of the impact of plastic and its contaminants on marine biodiversity is needed to better protect it in the future.

Our future depends on the health of the ocean.

If we want our actions to be sustainable, it is essential to educate people, and especially future generations, about new consumption patterns.

Our actions to face marine pollution

François Gabart, a dedicated ambassador. François Gabart is, since 2017, the fastest man sailing around the planet. This exceptional sailor has become aware of the richness and fragility of the Ocean by criss-crossing the seas of the globe.With the creation of Kresk 4 Oceans of which he is the ambassador, he has found a way to give a meaning to his values to practice his profession. On board the trimaran SVR-Lazartigue, he carries the messages of an Ocean to be respected and protected.

« The Ocean holds a very special place in my heart. I believe in everyone's responsibility to try to do something great on a global level. For us skippers, the only limit to our progress at sea will be global warming. We must find solutions for tomorrow so that our children can look to the future with confidence and desire. »

A scientific expedition to understand the impact of plastic pollution on marine biodiversity.
An unprecedented program, launched for 3 years, by KRESK 4 OCEANS and an unprecedented scientific protocol led by Expedition Septième Continent and CNRS. The originality of this project is based on a multi-disciplinary study carried out in a natural environment.

Didier Tabary, founder of the Kresk group, was awarded a prize by the Fondation de la Mer for his commitment to protecting the oceans through the Kresk 4 Oceans Fund. A scientist and a start-up were also honored at the event.
