White Flag International is part of the OACM brand and a main OACM SOS CP green engine responsible for most concrete measures and solutions to physically reduce the plastic and marine debris in oceans, lakes and rivers.
White Flag International is the world’s first and only sustainable ocean cleaning and certification system developed to minimize the plastic and non-degradable material in the oceans, lakes and rivers, as well as to protect human, aquatic and marine life above and beneath the surface. White Flag core is based on the act of physical extraction of plastic and non-degradable material in lakes, rivers and sea beds, which are poisoning the ecological processes of fragile aquatic life and ecosystems. It suffocates marine life, and micro plastic ends up in the human food chain.
The unique systematic global plastic extraction program is implemented in nations and governments worldwide in collaboration with the corporate sector. The White Flag plastic extraction program is considered to be the world’s most concrete solution in the field of ocean protection, preservation and cleaning. It is the first step for humankind to ensure the ocean’s and planet’s sustainability for the future generations.
Developed in 2009 by divers, marine biologists, marine researchers and oceanographers in close collaboration with world’s leading financial, economic and marketing specialists from governmental, corporate, and NGO sector, the White Flag has earned its status symbol of hope and healthy oceans.
The unique symbol reuniting the human race with the oceans has developed an internal communication platform and system which will help humans see the current ocean pollution problem much more seriously and on a completely new level which we have never seen or experienced before. It will give us the exact assessment of the pollution problem situation and most importantly give us the exact results and numbers of our globally initiated programs and initiatives.
White Flag is an efficient ocean cleaning program providing immediate results, visual improvement, and is globally easily integrated in governmental and corporate sectors, world organizations or any institution directly or indirectly connected to oceans, lakes or rivers.
Every White Flag raised on a beach or a marine area is a sign of physically removed plastic from the ocean.
CSMA - Certified SAFE Marine Area is a term for physically cleaned and certified ocean, lake or river bed, rid of plastic and other non- degradable material beneath the surface.
The core essence of White Flag International focuses on minimizing the plastic content in the ocean and saving the aquatic and marine life from plastic strangulation. It also stops the breaking of big plastic pieces in micro plastic and ensures the conservation of biodiversity, the social welfare and the economic security of the countries and communities with an integrated OACM SOS Conservancy Program.
CSMA helps optimal use of environmental resources that constitute a key element in tourism development, maintaining essential ecological processes and helping to conserve natural heritage and biodiversity.
