Mary Kay announced it proudly participated the 11th Annual World Ocean Summit & Expo, held in Lisbon, Portugal, between March 11-13. As a bronze level sponsor of the summit, Mary Kay demonstrated its unwavering commitment to fostering a sustainable blue economy as a private sector representative and through its long-standing collaboration with The Nature Conservancy (TNC).

The Annual World Ocean Summit & Expo, organized by Economist Impact, convened over 200 expert speakers and a diverse international audience.  The meetings focused on actionable solutions to some of the most pressing oceanic challenges, underlining the importance of collaborative efforts across sectors.

Sandra Silva, general manager of Mary Kay Portugal, took an active role in the panel discussion titled “Developing Blue Nature-based Projects.” She shared insights on the crucial need for collaborative efforts in marine conservation and highlighted the impact of incorporating gender perspectives in initiatives tackling climate change challenges and biodiversity loss. – Mary Kay’s participation at this year’s World Ocean Summit was not only about reinforcing our dedication to ocean conservation, but also about spotlighting the essential role of women in these efforts – said Silva.

Mary Kay has been working to elevate ocean health and coral reef awareness through its support of The Nature Conservancy for 37 years. Some of the most recent projects include the Super Reef restoration in the Asia Pacific region and other projects in Hawaii, Palau, the Marshall Islands, and Belize. These projects align with Mary Kay’s mission to not only enrich lives but also to ensure the longevity and health of marine environments for future generations.
