For a sustainable blue economy
The Centre for the Ocean and the Arctic works towards sustainable value creation from the ocean. We put the ocean on the agenda, and contribute to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We also facilitate partnerships for building sustainable blue business.
Norway has an ambition to increase the value creation from the sea. Existing industries change and new ones emerge. In the long term, there will be a greater rift for the most attractive sea areas. We should avoid a development where the level of conflict increases and the climate and nature crisis worsen. It is necessary to identify nature-positive solutions that can contribute to more value creation without increasing the conflicts. One possible solution can be marine business parks.
«We have always lived well off the bounty of the sea. Let us all work together towards a sustainable future.»
