Event Summary

Investing in the Blue Economy will bring together leading investors and policymakers to debate the short and long-term risks and opportunities associated with ocean resources as a source of financial return. This event will present original research and expert views on how investors are preparing to ramp up financing for a sustainable blue economy.

Find out how investors are responding to the challenges and opportunities in SDG 14

Investors have, up to now, been slow to respond to the state of the oceans. There is some indication that SDG 14, Life Below Water, is receiving the least capital investment globally. Despite a growing number of sustainability-themed global investment frameworks – such as the Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Principles, the Principles for Responsible Investment and the Principles for Sustainable Insurance – investor views on and awareness of the Blue Economy are not yet clear. Join us in New York to learn how leading investors are financing a more sustainable blue economy.
