Rethinking Business as Usual for our Ocean

Media

As summer kicks into high gear, millions will flock to our coastlines to enjoy clean beaches, watch wildlife, and dive into the clear blue. This natural capital is the backbone of America's ocean and coastal economies from the thriving coastal tourism and recreation industry to the growing ocean energy sector.

Increasingly, progressive-thinking companies are seeing the value of sustainably managing our ocean, asking how they can make a difference, and fostering innovative private-public partnerships and initiatives for investing in our marine and coastal resources. Is there a leading role that the private sector can play in creating a new paradigm for "business as usual" for our ocean?
