Season's Greetings 2018

The Euronav team would like to wish you and all those who are dear to you, a healthy and prosperous 2018.

For the past ten years, Euronav has opted to send its best wishes for the New Year through an electronic card. The money otherwise allocated to paper and stamps is being donated in order to support a charity of our choice. As the ocean is our environment, Euronav has chosen for the third year in a row to send an e-card to raise money for The Ocean Cleanup.

The Ocean Cleanup’s mission is to develop advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.

The organization was founded in 2013 by Boyan Slat (1994), a TU Delft drop-out. In 2014 the United Nations Environment Program awarded Slat with the ‘Champion of the Earth’ accolade. The Ocean Cleanup has received over USD 31 million in funding since inception. In 2018 they will start the cleanup, by deploying their very first cleanup system in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, after which they will scale up to a fleet of around 50 systems. They estimate to be able to remove 50 % of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch within 5 years time from full-scale deployment.

You can learn more about The Ocean Cleanup on their website www.theoceancleanup.com.

This donation is part of our corporate social responsibility program.
