Volvo Ocean Race has named Stena Recycling as an official sustainability programme partner.

Stena Recycling will activate the partnership by providing an expert speaker on sustainability at Volvo Ocean Race Ocean Summits to discuss innovative solutions to the global crisis of ocean plastics.

Stena Recycling will work along with other Volvo Ocean Race sustainability programme partners like founding principal sustainability partners 11th Hour Racing and principal partner Mirpuri Foundation.

The programme includes science and education programmes to help the race take action to prevent plastics polluting seas by maximising impact at host cities. The programme is also a supporter of the United Nations Environment’s Clean Seas campaign.

Anne-Cecile Turner, sustainability programme leader for the Volvo Ocean Race, said: “By joining the Volvo Ocean Race as a sustainabilty partner, Stena Recycling bring a wealth of experience in managing waste products such as plastic which is impacting upon the health of the world’s oceans.

“Volvo Ocean Race Ocean Summits provide a platform to showcase innovative solutions to this global crisis and Stena’s expertise and insight will help create a foundation for positive change.”

Kristofer Sundsgård, managing director Stena Recycling, said: “We need to have a circular perspective on all material in use. As a partner in the Volvo Ocean Race, we are able to spread knowledge of sustainable recycling. Where others see the end of a product cycle, we see the beginning of something new.”
