Transporting goods by sea is not merely a formality but an opportunity to share beliefs and spread ideas.
TIMBERCOAST and their sail cargo ship, the AVONTUUR, are providing wind powered cargo shipping, linking sustainable producers with their ecological consumers. Their mission is to promote social and ecological sustainability in the shipping industry by being a flagship for change.
TIMBERCOAST is well positioned to impact the landscapes of the global shipping industry, sustainable tourism, and sustainability awareness. By modeling a new path forward, inspiring a common vision of possible futures, challenging current harmful practices, prototyping innovative solutions, and creating an enabling culture for employees, TIMBERCOAST is starting “the dialogue that creates the cultural change and governance transformations necessary” within the broader shipping industry.
The statistics are clear, the current 50.000 plus commercial ships are destroying our oceans and spewing toxins into the atmosphere. For this global dependency to change, TIMBERCOAST understands that there must be a collaborative and viable alternative solution.
TIMBERCOAST believes that those who come after us deserve the same resources we currently use and enjoy. The science is clear, commercial shipping transportation practices are unsustainable and detrimental to humanity and the environment.
