Ocean 100 Dialogues

Sprints to the United Nations Ocean Conference (June 2022) and beyond

Key ocean sustainability challenges will be addressed in the form of topical sprints organized into three overarching marathons on climate change, marine biodiversity loss, and equity of ocean access. Each sprint is a process that starts with a thorough science-based diagnostic as a basis for co-designing concrete “ocean stewardship” initiatives and detailed implementation design. Each sprint will focus on global ocean sustainability challenges that can be best solved across industries and where Ocean 100 companies can have the greatest impact , such as for example building a portfolio of blue carbon offsets and insets, protection of marine wilderness, working conditions across ocean industries, coastal community access to ocean economy benefits or ocean-based carbon capture and storage.

Through the Ocean 100 Dialogues, participating companies define and co-create the sprints, guided by thorough science and a rapid, facilitated process.

Timeline and Commitment

Interested Ocean 100 companies are being asked to engage now in a first prototype sprint, and to help shape future sprints. Based on consultations with companies, the Ocean 100 planning team has agreed to:

  • Launch the prototype sprint on Blue Carbon under the Climate Change challenge area
  • Scope and build out further a sprint under the biodiversity challenge area.
  • The highest levels of company leadership must be engaged in order to achieve desired impact and deliver on cross-industry commitments.
