Stromma and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) have in 2018 entered a renewed partnership for a cleaner Baltic Sea. The goal with the cooperation is to take a lead on the sustainability aspect within tours and activity sector. The partnership covers the Stromma Group, even though a cleaner Baltic Sea is of even higher importance to our Scandinavian destinations.
What does the cooperation mean?
Through the partnership, Stromma commits to lowering its environmental impact, by setting and following industry-leading environmental targets such as renewable energy sources, certified food and beverages, lowered CO2 emissions and recycling.
The Baltic Ecoregion Programme
Stromma helps with own contribution and by raising funds for WWF projects in the Baltic Sea, like BEP – Baltic Ecoregion Programme.
In Finland we work together with WWF to reduce plastics in the Baltic Sea
Stromma Finland supports WWF's activities to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the Baltic Sea. Launched together with the Uusimaa ELY Centre, the MURU project aims to increase information about plastic waste in the Baltic Sea and knowledge about better practices to reduce littering. In addition, WWF collects microplastic samples and data on plastic waste from the shores of the Baltic Sea as well as organises open waste collection volunteering events in cooperation with the Finnish Environment Institute and Keep the Archipelago Tidy Association (Pidä Saaristo Siistinä ry).
