SSI is commited to the wellbeing of our oceans.

Through the creation of Blue Oceans, SSI continues to strengthen its commitment to the well-being of ourselves, our society, and our oceans. One of SSI’s foundational pillars is to align its corporate activities with having the smallest possible impact on the environment.
