In September 2010, P1 launched a registered charity which has as its principal objective the promotion of the conservation, protection and improvement of the marine and coastal environment. The Foundation focuses on conservation by supporting research, raising awareness of serious threats to the oceans and creating selected partnerships.

Marine litter is one of the biggest threats to marine life and to nearby coastal communities. It damages wildlife mainly through entanglement and ingestion and affects coastal communities by contamination and health hazards. We can help to reduce marine litter by minimising waste on the beach and educating others its negative impacts.
The impact of boating on aquatic ecosystems is significant. The volume of hydrocarbons and oil pollution that enters the water around the coasts is estimated to be equivalent to an Exxon Valdez oil spill. We can reduce this effect on the environment by careful attention to routine boat maintenance and use.
