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 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, and businesses that are connected to the ocean have a critical role to play.
Today, more and more businesses around the world are taking an interest in ocean sustainability. The UN Global Compact Action Platform for Sustainable Ocean Business brings diverse companies, civil society organizations and Governments together with the UN to find new ways for companies to navigate the ocean challenge, using our Ten Principles on human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption as their North Star.
