Quintet Private Bank (mother company of InsingerGilissen) is partnering with the Turner Twins, with our shared vision of leading the way towards a more sustainable future.
The Blue Pole Project
The Turner Twins thrive on purpose-led adventures for the benefit of people and the planet. With the Blue Pole Project, they intend to normalise the use of hydrogen power and encourage the switch to green technologies. The project involves embarking on a six week, 100% emission-free sailing expedition to the Atlantic Pole of Inaccessibility in a hydrogen-fuel powered yacht as they collect data for a research study carried out by Plymouth University’s International Marine Litter Unit, which aims to identify macro plastics in the ocean. The results of this study will help build a clean up strategy for ocean plastics for the long term.
Introducing the Turner Twins
The Turner Twins are British adventurers who have undergone a host of world-first expeditions to educate people about our world through technology and purposeful adventure. They use the challenges as opportunities to champion brands that are striving to be more sustainable and to normalise doing things differently, showing how new technology and transport can be used every day for the benefit of people and the planet.
Together they have crossed the Atlantic Ocean, climbed Mount Elbrus, attempted to trek the Greenland Ice Cap and have reached several Poles of Inaccessibility including the Australian, North and South American and Iberian Poles.
It’s time for change
There are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean. Of that mass, 269,000 tons float on the surface, while some four billion plastic microfibers per square kilometre litter the deep sea. 10 million tonnes of plastic make their way into the ocean each year, and when you think about how a lego brick can survive in the ocean for as long as 1,300 years, this adds up quickly.
Climate changes are now inevitable and irreversible but if we can reach Net Zero by 2050, we can still avoid some of the most devastating effects of global warming - including slowing the heating and reducing the acidity of the oceans. It is now more important than ever to take action and lead the way towards a better future.
