Mary Kay Sustainability Project Featured in Economist Impact’s World Ocean Summit in Singapore

Mary Kay Inc., a global advocate for corporate sustainability and stewardship and signatory to the UN Global Compact Sustainable Ocean Principles, continues to support global efforts to increase ocean awareness and highlight the important role the ocean plays in efforts to combat climate change.

This week at the Economist Impact’s World Ocean Summit Asia Pacific in Singapore, a Mary Kay-supported project focused on women and conservation was featured in the panel “Innovation and adaptation—coastal solutions to climate change.” The panel covered the effect climate change is having on Asia-Pacific’s coastal ecosystems as well as on the global ocean and featured case studies on how the region is preparing for and adapting to climate change.

Mangroves are vital to coastal ecosystems yet are one of the most threatened ecosystems on the planet. To create long-term solutions for mangroves in Papua New Guinea, Mangoro Market Meri—an initiative supported by The Nature Conservancy and Mary Kay—is linking local efforts, ecotourism, and blue carbon (the carbon that is captured by the world's oceans and coastal ecosystems) to create incentives for mangrove protection and restoration.

The women of Mangoro Market Meri market sustainable mangrove products, such as shellfish and mud crabs to generate much-needed income and employment opportunities while also protecting mangroves from being harvested for their wood. With Mary Kay’s support, the women of Mangoro Market Meri receive training in gender equity, leadership, financial literacy, and business management.

Ruth Konia, Mangoro Market Meri programme manager for The Nature Conservancy’s Melanesia Program, joined panelists from UNEP, WWF China, and the Greener India Council, to share the impact The Nature Conservancy is having in the region with private sector support from Mary Kay.

“Women must be empowered in decision making related to their health, education, governance, and finances. Mangoro Market Meri is changing mind-sets and giving our women equal opportunities by empowering women through mangrove conservation,” said Ruth Konia. “When women are empowered, their actions bring positive impacts to their families and produce ripples that benefit the whole community.”

Mary Kay is committed to being a good steward of natural resources while fostering gender equality and women’s empowerment in conservation across the globe.
