Opportunities to Engage: Oceans
There’s a strong business case for acting now to help secure resilient and productive oceans. Healthy oceans are fundamental to meeting basic human needs as they feed, employ, and protect billions of people from sea level rise, flooding, storm surges, and disasters.
The ocean economy generates more than $2.5 trillion in value every year, which is all at risk if overexploitation and climate change continue on their current, parallel trajectories. Businesses have a lead role to play in securing more resilient and productive oceans that benefit people and nature. We have many of the solutions. Industry leaders are needed to scale solutions for even greater impact.
