Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators
Sarah Auffret works as environmental agent for the association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO), an international association for expedition cruise operators and others who support its vision of responsible, environmentally friendly and safe tourism in the Arctic. Sarah leads AECO’s Clean Seas Project which is supported by the UN Environment. By reducing single-use plastic consumption, facilitating first-hand experiences of the extent of the marine litter problem in the Arctic and educating on its consequences, AECO is keen to demonstrate how industries can be driving forces in the fight against marine litter. Our set of best practices strive to be applicable to other industries as well as individuals so our work will benefit a wider audience.
