Perseus Telecom Pledges Support for Oceanic Society
NEW YORK, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Perseus Telecom, a global provider of connectivity, today announced a strategic alliance with the Oceanic Society, a non-profit conservation organization whose mission is to preserve marine wildlife and habitats worldwide. Perseus Telecom is a strong advocate for environmental health, striving to identify worthy causes, such as the Oceanic Society’s State of the World’s Sea Turtles (SWOT) Program and other conservation science projects established to help protect the world’s oceans. Marine conservation awareness is driving this alliance with the aim to gain exposure and industry attention on how to best leverage telecommunications as a primary and most efficient choice of conducting business around the globe.
Perseus Telecom delivers ultra-fast connectivity service while having an “ultra” low impact environmentally. By utilizing a dispersion compensation methodology, the firm delivers faster processing equipment using existing submarine assets and shorter cable paths. Financial firms are able to minimize non-essential travel by providing teleconferencing options to conduct transactions in an environmentally friendly way while being seamless and secure.
Roderic Mast, Executive Vice President of the Oceanic Society, comments, “We are extremely grateful for Perseus’ commitment to ocean conservation. It is both uncommon and admirable for a company to be so proactive in minimizing its environmental impact and supporting conservation work. Beyond financial support to our work, Perseus has already made significant efforts to minimize their environmental footprint. Through this partnership, we look forward to working together to identify new opportunities for Perseus to continue its leadership in sustainable global telecommunications.”
Over the course of the year, Perseus will donate resources to support the SWOT program. SWOT is a global collaboration among sea turtle researchers to assess sea turtle distribution and status and inform improved conservation and management efforts around the world. Oceanic Society will also help Perseus look for additional opportunities to be a leader in sustainability within the telecommunications industry.
The strategic alliance came from the desire of Perseus Telecom CEO, Dr. Jock Percy, to give back to the oceans where Perseus’ global telecommunications cables lay. Dr. Percy notes, “Perseus has established methods of green connectivity whilst still being the fastest cable system, cutting down distance and energy usage. We are dedicated to preserving the world’s oceans by minimizing waste and are confident the Oceanic Society is a wonderful way to give back.”
