The Last 300 - Robert Swan OBE
CPL Industries are proudly sponsoring the 2041 Foundation which is founded by Robert Swan OBE. Swan’s determination to protect and preserve Antarctica has been unparalleled for the past 35 years. At a very young age, Robert watched a movie about Sir Robert Falcon Scott, the renowned British explorer who was beaten to the South Pole by Roald Amundsen, a Norwegian Explorer and from then found a new fascination with the icy terrain. Swan is now a very successful polar explorer having been the first to walk to the North and South Pole, unsupported. But his mission doesn’t stop there. Swan has dedicated his life to pass on the important message that we as a planet need to make recycling, renewable energy and sustainability to combat the effects of climate change and to preserve Antarctica, the last great wilderness.
CPL Industries is dedicating so much to Robert Swan’s expedition because the message Robert and his team represent is how important it is to use renewable, recycled and sustainable energy sources and that’s exactly what Ecoal50 is.
At the end of 2019 Robert Swan will attempt to fulfill a lifelong dream of crossing the Antarctic Landmass and we wish him the best of luck!
