Members of The Good Ocean share a common love of the ocean and are eager to help reverse the destruction that is currently occurring. More than 70% of the planet is covered in water, and yet less than 2% of the ocean is fully protected. 1 The Program is unified, passionate, and takes a business approach to increase the protection of the world’s oceans. GOAT, as a new member of The Good Ocean, is committing to supporting the development of a more sustainable ocean economy through its operations and investments. SeaLegacy aligns with businesses who genuinely care about their impact on the ocean – and the planet – and are proactively attentive to the growing consumer demand for accountability in how products are made, sold and marketed.
Additionally, The Good Ocean has recently announced a partnership with the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) to accelerate the protection of 30% of the ocean by 2030 and is participating in a campaign to protect the New Zealand shark community from poaching.

“SeaLegacy’s Good Ocean is a community of passionate and proactive businesses unified by an ability and commitment to disrupt their industry,” said Cristina Mittermeier, Co-founder and President of SeaLegacy. “Our members are leaders in their space, responding to the growing consumer demand for accountability in how products are produced, distributed and packaged. I am honored that the team at GOAT has chosen to align with SeaLegacy, and together, we can take steps towards systemic change in our consumer culture,” added Ms. Mittermeier.
“GOAT is a proud new member of SeaLegacy’s Program, which is a growing community of aligned businesses guided by a commitment to respond quickly to the urgent need to make systemic changes in consumer habits regarding our oceans. We are excited to participate in making sustainable choices and encouraging other businesses to do the same, while encouraging strong returns on investment and high levels of customer satisfaction,” said Tony Harris, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GOAT.
