Confronting Climate Change

Taking the ocean into account is critical for successfully addressing climate change, and addressing climate change is critical for the future of the ocean

Ocean Conservancy at COP 29

Ocean Conservancy is heading to COP 29, the UN Climate Conference in Baku, with a clear agenda:

  • Elevate the ocean’s role as a powerful solution to climate change
  • Champion clean ocean energy as a crucial ocean-based climate mitigation solution by advocating for a responsible, rapid and just transition to clean ocean energy. This includes advancing the deployment of offshore wind with a net-positive impact on biodiversity and promoting the phase-out of offshore fossil fuels.
  • Advocate to address the blue finance gap, by making the case for the for concessional finance to support developing countries in deploying offshore wind energy at scale.
  • Raise awareness about the escalating plastic production, urging its integration into the emission reduction agendas of nations.
  • Provide a convening space for parties in bringing ocean-based climate solutions to the forefront of climate negotiations.

We recognize the monumental challenge of addressing climate and biodiversity crises while ensuring a healthy, thriving and resilient ocean. Every day, we witness the ocean’s diminishing capacity to protect us. The science is unequivocal—to save the ocean, we must limit planetary warming to 1.5 degrees. This calls for a 45% reduction in global emissions by 2030, a goal we believe is intrinsically linked to the ocean’s health.
