CollectiX Cleanup Mission in sight

We get support from the Audi Foundation for Environment and BABOR. In total, several actions are planned over the whole of 2021.

“The global problem of plastic pollution can only be solved together. Partnerships are crucial for this.”
Marcella Hansch, CEO everwave)

Every year over 11 million tons of plastic find their way into our oceans. Much of it across rivers. We face this global challenge every day.

Our vision: A responsible society for healthy oceans.

We are guided by the 17 goals for sustainable development of the United Nations . A crucial pillar, number 17, represents global partnerships to achieve the goals. We are sure that the world can only be changed in the long term with the right partners and we look forward to the cooperation with Audi Foundation for the Environment and BABOR.

Three business areas, one goal that unites:

“Water is the basis of all life and absolutely worth protecting. Clean waters, seas, and rivers must be our common priority, ”says Rüdiger Recknagel, Managing Director of the Audi Environmental Foundation.

For the year 2021, we are planning a joint initiative with the two new supporters with several campaigns spread over the year. This includes information events, campaigns at the locations of the partners involved, and a Cleanup Mission. As a prelude, the CollectiX garbage collection boat will collect rubbish floating in the Danube in April of this year! BABOR and the Audi Foundation for the Environment support the use of this boat.

“For us it is only logical that we want to make our own contribution with like-minded people. After all, sustainability is part of the BABOR DNA, ”says BABOR managing director Horst Robertz.

A common boat name is still being worked out. Here it is worthwhile to follow the channels of the two fellow campaigners because there will be a vote!

Our common goal: A clean environment.

We look forward to the coming months and of course, we will keep you updated!
