Dhiraagu has signed as the Digital Partner for Ocean 6|50 event together with Unix Sporting and Shafraz Naeem, a well-known technical diver in the Maldives to celebrate the Golden Jubilee year of Maldives Tourism.  

The main objective of this 50-hour dive event is to bring the local and international diving community, marine researchers’ environmental activists together to raise awareness and advocate for meaningful and sustainable solutions to the issues of plastic pollution, climate change, endangered species and the marine eco system. The event is scheduled to take place from 25-27 February 2022. Through-out this period, divers can visit Shafraz to sign the pledge and stand in solidarity for this cause. This dive is the first of its kind in South Asia region that is set to be a significant record.  

Care for the Oceans is a key focus area under Dhiraagu’s CSR programme which contributes to support the United Nations SDG Goal, “Life Below Water”. Since 2016, the company further strengthened efforts through discontinuation of single-use plastic bottles at the workplace, introduction of water dispensers, reusable bags and carrying out company- wide and public awareness initiatives. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dhiraagu raised awareness on the surge of plastic pollution and on important steps that the public could ensure to responsibly discard items like single use- gloves and masks.  

Dhiraagu is committed to work together with organizations and individuals to accelerate the efforts with a new push to create urgency and call to action for preserving the oceans, for the lives and livelihoods of our future generations.
