In November 2021, the Teréga Accélérateur d'Énergies endowment fund committed itself alongside The Sea Cleaners association, created by navigator Yvan Bourgnan, to helping protect the oceans and combat plastic waste.
The Sea Cleaners, an association created in 2016, takes action against plastic pollution at sea and on land, and in doing so helps protect our oceans.
the environment, through its actions to collect waste
in raising awareness among the general public and political and economic decision-makers
to scientific research
the circular economy
Through its endowment fund, Teréga pursues its commitment to protecting the environment and supports original projects and initiatives to preserve biodiversity.
That environmental commitment is clearly set out in one of the endowment fund’s main action areas: “Mobilising people around environmental protection and biodiversity.”
As part of its action against plastic pollution in seas and oceans, The Sea Cleaners is developing an innovative vessel: The Manta.
This ship, a veritable floating factory, will be capable of collecting and repurposing floating microplastic waste. Due for launch in 2024, this ship will be the first vessel capable of collecting and processing floating waste before it disperses and penetrates the marine ecosystem for good.
