Our oceans have tremendous social and economic value, but overfishing and pollution are now affecting both the wellbeing of humans and the future of businesses dependent on the ocean.
What the hub is working on
The ocean hub is developing an in-depth systemic mapping and ranking of the drivers, impacts and known cumulative impacts of declining ocean health. This work will feed into the deliverables of the Earth Commission.
To identify what recommended targets, advice and accountability mechanisms are already available, the hub is also reviewing ocean-related corporate disclosure platforms and guidance frameworks, ocean-based business and industry best practices, inter-governmental targets frameworks and other relevant sustainability frameworks.
How to get involved
The hub plans to engage with corporations through an advisory group, to stress test and pilot emerging targets. Please contact Ben Hart (Ben.Hart@wri.org) should you wish to participate..
