The Oceanic Standard

Free industry-specific guides for adopting sustainable practices that meet both business and environmental needs

Through our work in creating educational events and immersive experiences surrounding ocean conservation, Oceanic Global has identified opportunities in which we can apply our “individual action” mindset and #ourchoicesmatter campaign to create scalable change.

We launched the Oceanic Standard (TOS) guides to provide industries with easy, cost-effective alternatives to habitually used products and processes that threaten our environment. TOS empowers both b2b and b2c change, supporting businesses and consumers alike in driving collective action.
