CONTRIBUTING TO THE UNITED NATIONS GLOBAL GOALS – the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We, at Ecocoast, are committed to doing our part. We recognize that the SDGs are an important development in global efforts to make a positive difference to the most pressing social, economic and environmental challenges in the world today.
The UN Sustainable Development Goal 9 is ‘Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure’. The aim of SDG 9 is to build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation. Read below about Ecocoast’s actions in contributing to this goal.
Environmental sustainability is how we live, work and build at Ecocoast. Ecocoast’s core purpose is to pioneer. We impact SDG 9 as the global leader in pioneering solutions that protect and support our marine environment. Ecocoast develops sustainable solutions for coastal and marine development across the entire value chain, from design to manufacturing and from operations to maintenance. Through our marine innovation lab, Ecolabs, we will continue to lead an innovation culture by continuously setting new standards in marine solutions.
In 2018, we were finalist and winner in 2 innovation award categories: Business Innovation of the Year at both Gulf Capital SME Awards and MEED Awards. In their words, the judges selected us for the Business Innovation Award, because “The biggest reason why they stand out: they are a local company truly going global. They display innovation throughout the organisation with a number of different products and initiatives. The fact their mission and vision are so powerful and impactful not only to the region but the world is nothing short of amazing.”
