Welcome to the Oceans & Water Forum at Innovation Zero.

The world ocean encompasses over 70% of the surface area of the planet and 99% of its living space. It is the largest carbon sink on earth and could deliver a fifth of the emissions cuts needed to limit temperature rise to 1.5°C. But our oceans are boiling.

This forum discusses the ways in which we can protect and restore our seas, while harnessing the huge investment opportunities available in the Blue Economy.
