KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 11 (Bernama) -- Cosmetics company Mary Kay Inc has been recognised in The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) 2022 Global Reefs Impact Report.
Mary Kay said the report highlights its recent achievements and how the organisation has partnered with the private sector to successfully implement innovative marine conservation programmes that protect and preserve life in our oceans.
“Throughout 2022, Mary Kay, a global advocate for corporate sustainability and stewardship, has worked to elevate ocean awareness in climate work and as an approach to address the climate crisis,” it said in a statement.
The report showcased a newly launched project focused on “Super Reefs” -- reefs that are resistant to climate change impacts and can replenish damaged reefs nearby -- with the mission to identify, protect, and grow a global network of Super Reefs to secure the future of coral reefs.
Mary Kay said the Super Reefs team brings together experts in ocean science, conservation, and management from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Stanford University, and TNC, along with private sector support from Mary Kay, to support governments and communities at this critical moment in the history of coral reefs.
“Our partnership with TNC stretches back more than 32 years -- but we’re just getting started.
“Throughout 2022, we’ve doubled down on our sustainability efforts, including a focus on ocean health. The health of our oceans is the health of our planet, and it’s essential we do our part to protect them,” said Mary Kay chief operating officer Deborah Gibbins.
In 2022, Mary Kay supported 11 projects related to global ocean protection initiatives to improve ocean health for nature and people through the protection and restoration of critical habitats such as coral reefs, oyster reefs, and coastal wetlands.
The projects include restoring Asia-Pacific shellfish reefs in Australia, Hong Kong, China, and the Coral Triangle; supporting women environmental leaders in the Pacific in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands; and improving fisheries in Mexico to empower communities and women in the fishing industry.
