The theme of this year's Earth Day, "Invest In Our Planet," aligns closely with our core purpose, with the origins of Earth Day also holding significance for us, sparked by the Santa Barbara, California, oil spill in 1969, As a global organisation specialising in oil spill response and environmental services, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact and promoting sustainable practices. Celebrating Earth Day allows us to reflect on our progress and identify areas where we can continue to positively impact our planet. Find out what we've been doing to Invest In Our Planet
