The One Ocean Foundation, in collaboration with SDA Bocconi, McKinsey & Company and the CSIC, has committed to a multi-year research project aimed at measuring the impact of business on the marine ecosystem. “Business for Ocean Sustainability” examines the relationship between ocean sustainability and the economy by adopting a new investigative perspective.
The research studies the level of awareness as well as the strategies and innovative practices adopted by companies to reduce their pressures on marine and coastal ecosystems. Not only the direct pressures generated by production and consumption activities, but also indirect pressures. It also highlights the contribution of businesses in accelerating change towards a more sustainable economy.
