Setting sails for a cleaner planet

For us at BillerudKorsnäs, collaboration is key for sustainable development. That’s why we support the endeavours of the floating research institute, Tara Expeditions. The one-of-a-kind boat Tara is sailing all over the world to investigate the conditions in our oceans. We at BillerudKorsnäs are following her amazing journeys and meet up with her crew in different corners of the world. 

Challenge 2018 Tara Portland

Tara Pacific Portland

Over the last 15 years, Tara Expeditions has traveled around the world educating and increasing environmental awareness of the ocean. As consultants to the United Nations, they are working on long-term advocacy plans to activate citizens and politicians to take action and find solutions to the critical environmental issues of littering and plastics at sea.

Tara Expeditions

The unique boat Tara is available to researchers from all over the world who analyse pollution, the effects of climate change and diversity.

Challenge

Our meeting-places bring together decision-makers, scientists and representatives from the business community to discuss environmental challenges.

Waste

Tara has encountered healthy seas but unfortunately also a good deal of rubbish, and mainly plastics which have a serious effect on ecosystems.
