Ocean energy featured at UN Ocean Conference in June
The UN Global Compact, the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative, will organise a high-level meeting on Harnessing Ocean Electricity at the 2020 UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon on 2-6 June.
The meeting is based on the Five Tipping Points identified by the Global Compact's Action Platform for Oceans. The Platform joins together leading actors from business, academia and governments to determine how ocean industries can deliver a healthy ocean and a prosperous ocean economy.
The Action Platform has created Sustainable Ocean Principles that companies can endorse in order to demonstrate their commitment to ocean sustainability. Companies with a combined market value exceeding 2.5 trillion US dollars have already signed on. This initiative will enable the market forces to drive development in the right, more sustainable direction.
More information on endorsing the Principles can be found here.
