Clean Ocean Voluntary Corps

Since the Clean Ocean Voluntary Corps was founded in November in 2009 by POSCO, the company has worked to clean the marine ecosystem by removing waste such as fishing nets, tires and tents from the ocean. With 300 members of POSCO employees and their families, the corps cleans wastes both above and under the sea in Pohang and Gwangyang each month. The corps will do its utmost to appeal to the general public by shooting underwater photos of the ocean ecosystem while engaging in cleaning activities and undertaking eco campaigns more generally.
