Our global Antea Group water team sat together virtually to reflect back on 2020 and what a rollercoaster of a year it was. They all agreed that while COVID-19 dominated the headlines, significant attention has been placed on how society and governments are awakening to the realities of climate change.

PITTSBURGH, December 15, 2020 /3BL Media/ -- Covestro LLC is elevating its efforts to protect and preserve our world’s water sources by joining Operation Clean Sweep® (OCS) blue—an initiative born from the larger Operation Clean Sweep® program.
OCS® blue sets a higher benchmark for pellet loss prevention and is designed to drive best practices and data-informed strategies to keep plastic pellets, flakes and powder from getting into waterways that eventually lead to the sea.
As the author of “Jaws,” Peter Benchley, put it, “You could start now, and spend another forty years learning about the sea without running out of new things to know.” This week’s guest on Sea Change Radio would surely concur. Richard Delaney, the President and CEO of the Center for Coastal Studies, has spent the past forty some-odd years on Cape Cod, striving to understand the fathomless and majestic depths of the ocean.
