Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
We create a safe working environment for all genders and make an extra effort in our recruitment to offer opportunities for women in STEM careers. We offer flexible working hours and locations to make sure that women and men have as much opportunity as possible to succeed in their careers while balancing the demands of family and personal lives.
Promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all.
We are committed to sustainable growth economically, environmentally, and socially. It’s part of our value system and official mission, and we are legally bound to these ideals as a B Corp. We pay every employee a living wage and offer opportunities for further training, collaborations, and professional development.
Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation.
We work with (and for) people and entities who are also striving to create inclusive and sustainable economies. A significant portion of our efforts are dedicated to innovation research and development targeted to better our natural world and create powerful environmentally responsible solutions.
Reduce inequality within and among countries.
To reduce income inequality we pay all employees a living wage and offer room for advancement. We participate in B Corp equality workshops and are always working to improve our justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion policies to make sure they are aligned with our growing team and the changing world.
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable.
Whale Seeker’s main goal is to create tools to enable humans and marine mammals to coexist in beneficial ways. We believe the use of our solutions on small and large scales provide ways for human marine activities to grow more sustainably. We also create company initiatives to support our local community, such as our Neighbourhood Support Program in response to Covid’s impact on small companies close to our home and headquarters.
Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
In our work environment, we recycle everything we can and practice responsible consumption of everything from energy to food and transportation. The solutions Whale Seeker creates contributes to more eco-friendly supply chains for marine shipping, as well as coastal and marine development. Remote sensing tools for marine mammal monitoring are less or non-invasive, and also create a lower carbon footprint than traditional methods.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
We have policies to promote biking and public transportation, recycling, and responsible resource use. In addition, our core offerings use remote sensing tools such as drone or satellite images for marine mammal monitoring that use fewer fossil fuels than traditional methods of airplane/motorboat travel and surveillance. As our climate continues to warm, natural disasters are also increasing in severity and frequency. Whale Seeker is working with private and public partners to create marine mammal mitigation solutions in the event of oil spills and natural disasters.
Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development.
Detection and monitoring tools are essential for measuring the health of the ocean and understanding its changes. We create access to fast, reliable data on finer spatial and temporal scales, enabling decision-makers to enact policies and actions in a timely and more effective manner to preserve marine mammals. Our solutions protect oceanic biodiversity and healthy fisheries.
We are also committed to donating 1% of our revenue to nonprofits helping to protect the ocean.
Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
We are dedicated to improving accountability, integrity, and transparency within our own businesses and the countries in which we operate. We are actively working with Canadian partners to build circular economies for sustainable development.
Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.
We have projects and partners in North America, Europe, and Australia, with more projects on the horizon! Our solutions address a global problem and offer a scalable solution available to all.
