Networks join clean ocean initiative

The Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC), Priority Cargo Network and the Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) networks have joined the World Ocean Council (WOC).

Wolfgang Karau, director of the WWPC, Priority Cargo Network and CEE.

WOC is a multi-industry alliance that facilitates collaboration on sustainable ocean initiatives. The organisation includes industry stakeholders from a wide range of sectors including shipping, oil and gas, tourism, fisheries, mining and renewable energy.

Wolfgang Karau, director of the WWPC, Priority Cargo Network and CEE, said: “We have to take care of our planet and clean oceans for future generations. Most of our members are based close to shores and waterways and I am sure that our membership with WOC is the right step to manifest our commitment towards a cleaner tomorrow.”

WOC ceo Paul Holthus added that maritime transport and logistics, responsible for moving approximately 90 percent of international trade, “are fundamental to the future of the ocean”.
