Launched in 2010, Under The Pole is a fully fledged business venture that has gathered more than 100 experts together into an interdisciplinary team: from divers, sailors and scientists to mechanics, engineers, photographers, cameramen and doctors. Over three years, they are in turns exploring the earth’s oceans, starting in the Arctic Ocean before transiting via the Pacific to the Antarctic and then finally to the Atlantic. Exploration is focusing on the so-called twilight zone – sea beds situated between 50 and 150 meters below the surface level – about which relatively little is known.
Grégoire Bordier, Bordier & Cie Partner, has expressed his enthusiasm about this partnership: “Exploring the oceans and understanding the changes that are under way is one way of helping improve knowledge of the world in which we live and evolve. The purpose of our commitment is to improve scientific knowledge and raise public awareness of the importance, beauty but also the vulnerability of our ecosystems, while ensuring that this knowledge is circulated. There is a definite overlap between our world and that of explorers, namely a focus on research and development, leading-edge technologies, high performance, risk management and innovation. Respect and protection are other values adhered to in both fields.”
Michel Juvet, Bordier & Cie Partner, added: “Under The Pole won us over from the outset, just as we were seeking to invest in sustainability. This latest commitment reflects the values of our Group: responsibility, commitment and transmission to current and future generations. This is our way of passing on knowledge essential for fostering a better understanding of the environment and the challenge
