Let's welcome aboard IMPA SAVE the first three companies that have pledged in 2024: Coastal Supplies and Services (Tanzania), Seagulf Marine Industries Inc. (Canada) and Global Ship Services (USA). This brings our total number to 103. Will you be number 104?

Here is what our newest pledgers had to say in joining the SAVE initiative:

“With great pride, we announce our affiliation with IMPA SAVE and our commitment to a sustainable future. By taking this pledge, we emphatically reaffirm our dedication to environmental responsibility and the pursuit of eco-friendly practices. Together, we can wield a substantial influence on our planet, actively fostering a greener and cleaner world for the well-being of generations to come.” (Muhammad Saad Fasihi, Legal Counsel, Global Ship Services)

"Our company is from Tanzania where we have seen great destruction of marine and shore environments by plastics. Our government has also banned/restricted the use of plastic, further aligning with our belief on plastic restrictions." (David Shayo, Director, Coastal Supplies and Services)
