Overfishing, pollution, plastics, loss of habitat, acidification and warming are symptoms of a mis-functioning economy. For investors, this means a systematic destruction of value. Ocean Assets Institute is a Swiss-based NGO that was founded in 2016 to engage with companies and their financiers and to support investment in marine and coastal conservation. We are a team of financial and media experts who are committed to building bridges between the financial community, the maritime industries and the ocean ecosystems upon which so much depends. We focus primarily on Europe. We invite your organisation to support us as a member or with a sponsored project or grant.
Europe's maritime economy drives much of the health of our seas - which are in rapid decline. This is often the result of industry practices that can be changed. We engage with the financial community to speed up the transition to sustainability and value creation in maritime industries.
BlueCapital is a new OAI initiative to structure and support investment vehicles that benefit marine resources and coastal communities. Blue Capital acts as a research partner to identify the marine investment opportunities, match companies with capital, and measure the impact.
