Corporate Responsibility

Growing your organization. Responsibly.

Oceanogami is connecting organizations to the ocean by developing their marine corporate responsibility initiatives. This can include educating through courses, building the capacity and skills to take action through workshops, and even hands-on involvement through beach clean-ups and citizen science activities. Our goal is to help companies meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal #14, as well as other related SDGs along the way. We achieve these goals by engaging the public, finding solutions through research, and developing strategies for sustainable use of the marine environment.

With partners in Catalonia and overseas, we have access to a broad network of experts and sustainability organizations. Utilizing this, we organize awareness campaigns, team-building immersive experiences, workshops, and talks, in order to create awareness and find solutions for marine environmental problems (plastics, pollution, overfishing, climate change). We collaborate with organizations such as the Asociación Ambiente Europeo when engaging with companies to find tailored approaches to corporate sustainability. To see how we work together to help businesses, check out our corporate responsibility videos!

Current Projects

Oceanogami has a wide variety of projects, all focused on protecting our ocean and making it more accessible and sustainable for everyone. Check out some of our current initiatives below:

RSC-Mar: Corporate responsibility in the Barcelona coastal region

In partnership with:

Marine waste and plastics are one of the biggest current environmental problems that are affecting the marine biodiversity in the Catalan coast. Therefore, it is important to build a marine environmental responsibility to conserve our oceans and biodiversity.

To raise awareness about this problem, we seek to build marine environmental responsibility campaigns and promote education about Barcelona’s marine biodiversity in the corporate sector. We believe it is important to find personalized solutions for each organization to improve the environmental responsibility of companies and employees. We offer activities to develop the marine environmental responsibility of your company, as well as increase team cohesion by carrying out environmental responsibility work such as collecting plastics in the sea and beach.

Our objectives are:

  • To develop corporate marine environmental responsibility through various training activities and experiences
  • To sensitize and make people aware of the problem of marine waste, as well as to find solutions to promote recycling and circular economy
  • To generate a team connection
  • To approach and contribute to the recycling and reuse of waste through artistic recycling
  • To critically assess human intervention in the environment and adopt behaviors that favor the protection of the natural environment
  • To promote knowledge about the great biodiversity of local beaches

Building a Responsible Underwater Diving

In partnership with:

With Underwater Barcelona, eco-friendly dive resorts we organize underwater beach clean-ups and PADI courses for your team. Our aim is to increase awareness about local marine biodiversity, develop sustainable underwater diving skills, and involve citizens in taking action to help clean the ocean. If you book through Oceanogami you will also receive a personalized recycled souvenir. For groups, we offer an environmental talk by a marine biologist!

We help to create tailored programs to make responsible tourism a reality for any organization. See some of our projects below, as well as the organizations we partner with to protect our ocean.
