“The OceansLab – Race to Zero Emissions campaign enabled Edilians to partner with an winning ocean racing team uniquely focussed on the environment. At Edilians we endeavour to develop sustainable roofing solutions to benefit our clients and our planet, drawing strong parallels with OceansLab clean energy innovations achieved through passion, collaboration and determination.

“As a partner of the project we were able to develop many success stories through the ocean races and innovations, which improved workforce pride and excitement among our teams. What’s more, VIP sailing enabled us to develop client relations through unique long-lasting memories.

“Supporting Phil Sharp, his outstanding accolades, the Lab’s innovations and the team’s commitment to advancing renewable energy on the ocean has been inspirational to all involved and we are very proud to have been part of this journey.”

“Supporting OceansLab and their mission to develop and showcase clean performance energy solutions through the world’s hardest offshore sailing races proved inspirational for our teams and clients world-wide.

“As a global ambassador, Phil Sharp naturally aligned well with Imerys. His strong technical and communication skills were easily activated both internally and through our B2B networks, which gave rise to unique opportunities to develop relations.

“We are proud of the OceansLab team, their determination to win the Race to Zero Emissions, and are delighted to have been a part of this world first campaign.”

“We know from distilling that setting out with principles, and sticking to them, has the power to change an industry. Our relationship with Phil Sharp has deepened since 2015, when we first supported his entrepreneurial challenges to established records.

“Now his environmental leadership inspires us in our own mission to decarbonise our production on the Scottish island of Islay. From Islay, our commitments to people and the planet continue to gather strength, making us one of the only distilleries in the world to be B corp certified.

“Our three single malt whiskies and The Botanist Gin are thought-provoking spirits in a world we recognise as dynamic, rich and diverse, where how you operate makes a big difference. We see ourselves reflected in OceanLab’s passion and practicality, paving the way to an increasingly self-sufficient future.”
