Confluence Recommends: Cornerstone Capital Webinar: Oceans in Peril

Confluence Recommends:  Cornerstone Capital Webinar: Oceans in Peril: What Can Investors Do?

Wednesday, February 14, 2018, 8am PT / 11 am ET

 

The ocean is the largest source of life on our planet. Covering 70% of the Earth’s surface, it provides food, water, employment, goods and services that are worth billions of dollars. In fact, research has shown the ocean ecosystem would rate as the world’s 7th largest economy in terms of GDP for “goods and services” such as food, tourism, and shipping.

Yet in return we have been abusing it, stripping it of fish, choking it with pollution and acidifying its waters. We now run the risk of destroying this most valuable natural capital asset – the very thing that makes Earth habitable.

This not just an environmental issue. More than 3.5 billion people depend on the ocean for their primary source of food and about 10 percent of the global population depends on the seas for employment. Recognizing these imperatives, the UN to give the Oceans their own Sustainable Development Goal, #14.

Please join us for a discussion about what activists, philanthropists, companies, investors, and marine-dependent communities are doing to sustain this crucial resource.
