Leonard and SOA publish a study on the sustainable blue economy

Innovative solutions to unlock the full potential of the oceans

At a time when the oceans account for 70% of the earth's surface area, the sustainable blue economy is a sector that holds great promise in the fight against climate change and its many challenges.

The extraordinary, as yet untapped, potential of this sector is demonstrated throughout the sixty pages of this report. The sector, which will represent $3,000 billion a year by 2030 and at least 40 million jobs according to OECD estimates, is in constant development.

This is borne out by the growing number of sustainable blue-economy start-ups highlighted here, whose innovative solutions will enable us to make the most of this formidable resource all around us.
