    Keynote Lecture 9 – Unlocking A Sustainable Future With Ocean Innovation And Finance

    Ocean health is declining. It is not a silo-ed issue but one intrinsically connected to climate change and the loss of biodiversity, impacting both land-based and marine industries. Now more than ever, we must protect and restore our oceans and learn to use them in more sustainable ways. However, ocean health remains overlooked and underfunded in business and finance; UN SDG 14: Life below water, the global goal for ocean conservation, receives the least funding. We need to mobilise more finance, especially private capital, to support the conservation and sustainable use of our oceans and their resources.

    A sustainable ocean economy can bring economic, environmental, and social benefits, providing opportunities for corporations and investors. Restoring ocean health and transforming unsustainable practices are driving innovation across industries, from ocean-based climate solutions and sustainable seafood to ocean intelligence and innovative financial tools. Join us to explore the business and investment case for ocean action, with a focus on innovative ocean solutions that can help to unlock a sustainable and prosperous future.
