The whole world knows Dominic Thiem the tennis player, but of late it has also frequently encountered Dominic Thiem the environmental activist. Grabbing every opportunity to promote what he believes in, Thiem has made it clear that he wants to make an impact in the climate space and push more people to think about the consequences of their actions on the environment.

The Austrian's social media handles are always filled with references to nature and wildlife. He also recently appeared in a new commercial that is aimed at promoting environmental conservation.

At last week's Kosmos Sports Summit, Dominic Thiem was a part of a virtual conference alongside Parley founder Cyrill Gutsch. Parley is a non-profit environmental organization that focuses on the protection of the oceans.

Gutsch labeled Thiem an 'Ocean Warrior' for his contributions through the Adidas and Parley partnerships. And Thiem has continued to show his interest towards oceans and marine life, recently sharing a post by Sealegacy - another non-profit environmental organization working in the ocean space.
