The men and women who work at Mercator Ocean have contributed to the company’s achievements, and continue to help it develop, because of the scientific value and reliability of the innovative systems they produce, through the services they offer users around the world every day, and because they fully realise the public interest of these services: understanding, preserving and protecting the oceans through sustainable exploitation.
In numerous respects, our fundamental aspiration is the search for scientific and technical excellence for the benefit of society with full consideration for its environmental concerns. This can be seen in the constant effort to satisfy users and partners and by the positive, professional attitude of the individual members of staff, consistent with the best ethical standards.
As a producer and distributor of operational oceanography data, Mercator Ocean creates added value and generates innovation in the framework of its mandates. This dual responsibility requires an exemplary ethical attitude with regard to third parties. The development and reputation of Mercator Ocean are also built on these fundamental principles of integrity and transparency.
