Every second breath we take comes from the ocean. Connected to all life on this planet, the ocean is our greatest global common, uniting both people and nations. How we protect and manage the ocean will determine much of our success towards delivering the 17 Global Goals by 2030, and businesses that are connected to the ocean have a critical role to play.
As we approach 2020 and the decade of delivery for the Global Goals, we must leverage ocean sustainability, not only to protect the ocean itself, but to ensure people and planet can prosper and thrive. We have the knowledge, technology and means necessary to choose a trajectory of sustainable prosperity over a path of degradation and destruction. It is for us to decide and act — and act now.
It is for our generation to demonstrate the steward- ship, leadership and determination required to find the common solutions for the future that we want, as envisioned in Global Goals.
The 2019 report Global Goals, Ocean Opportunities, produced in consultation with over 300 stakeholders, identified five tipping points that represent a set of tangible objectives to address ocean sustainability challenges.
