Business and policy transformation
In 2017, the first UN Ocean Conference shone a spotlight on pressing ocean issues and galvanized momentum to accelerate action for ocean health and the well-being of people and planet. The conference led to over 1,300 voluntary commitments from actors around the globe but effective, strategic collaboration and engagement is needed to turn commitments into action.
