SOS CP (Sustainable Ocean Solutions Conservancy Program) is a complete set of programs, initiatives and reforms oriented toward the global protection, preservation, physical cleaning of the ocean, and reduction of current plastic content in the waters - which includes easy adaptation in governmental and corporate sectors.
We can’t ignore the amount of plastic that has ended up in the oceans, already killing marine life. The plastic will not dissolve in the next 500 years or more, and it is already becoming a part of the human food chain. We must learn to deal with this problem physically before we can stop the future pollution, and then we need to integrate measures that can prevent this from happening again. So far, the measures the world has integrated have shown no tangible results - and are too slowly implemented in general.
The system is intended to become globally integrated, which will help create a universal ocean preservation system that can with time evolve even more and become even more efficient once it is in full operational use. This unique and complex system is based on concrete measures and solutions which provide immediate tangible results as soon as it gets implemented in governmental institutions. These results can be measured in tonnes of extracted plastic and marine debris. At the essence of this system are its four main pillars - social, human, environmental and financial. All together, they provide nations with a financially sustainable system to preserve natural resources and gain economic growth through environmental protection. It is crucial to have a global impact in times such as these, when humankind has already surpassed the limits of how much more the ocean can take regarding the pollution and devastation. The new modern financially sustainable systems need to provide long-term operational solutions and answers to the imminent threat we are facing today.
If we don’t provide functional and sustainable solutions, the slow pace of current programs will endanger the ocean, and our health and welfare beyond the saving point. This is what we are faced with today.
The efficient and full global integration and the future development of SOS CP is dependent on its recognition by world leaders, heads of states, world organizations - such as the UN - and this is a part of the OACM’s main communication plan for 2020-2022.
Today, the OACM SOS CP is the world's only program for minimising the plastic content in the ocean - but even more unique is its ability to address the problem of plastic pollution in general.
The program deals with the current content of plastic in the ocean, which in the last two decades has been estimated to be around 196 million of tonnes of plastic.
Humankind can’t ignore the current amount of plastic in the ocean and the fact that it will not dissolve within the next 500 years. The problem needs to be addressed properly, and this is what the OACM SOS CP wants to achieve in collaboration with nations worldwide.
