Missions and values

Our fundamental purpose is to provide advice and expertise to French and foreign authorities and private businesses in charge of spill response.

Since 2014, we have also been appointed by the French Ministry of Ecology to run the surveillance network for litter and microplastics in shoreline sediment.

For almost 40 years, our team has been upholding three core values:

  • Expertise: over the years, we have built up our spill response knowledge and skills through our field experience, scientific skills and efficient information collection.
  • Efficiency: our team is constantly looking ahead to anticipate the needs and requests of our partners and clients, yet is also able to proficiently respond to urgent requests.
  • Environmental protection: from pre-spill preparedness to post-spill restoration, our actions always focus on reducing environmental impacts to a minimum while integrating personal protection and economic aspects.
