Ocean Network Express Takes to the Waterways in Celebration of World Clean Up Day

Singapore, 9 October 2023 – Ocean Network Express (ONE) proudly marked World Cleanup Day with a month-long #SeaTheChange campaign, as part of the ongoing #ONEOcean initiative.

With a common mission to make our planet a cleaner place, ONE employees across the globe came together to collect litter and debris from the waterways.

This year, as a Healthy Bays Partner for Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup™, selected ONE offices utilised the Clean Swell® app to further amplify the impact of their cleanup efforts. By cataloguing each item of trash collected, ONE plays an important role by contributing valuable datapoints to a comprehensive database, which in turn provides researchers and policymakers with the insights required for informed and targeted action.

At ONE’s global headquarters in Singapore, CEO Jeremy Nixon and Corporate & Innovation Division’s MD Yasuki Iwai led by example, joining 47 ONE employees in a beach cleanup at East Coast Park. Their active participation underscores ONE’s commitment to environmental responsibility.
