New briefing paper highlights the business opportunities inherent in the Blue Economy
In coming decades, oceans will play an important role in addressing the world’s biggest challenges, including food security, climate change, and economic development. Together, ocean-related industries—including shipping, ports, fishing, energy, tourism, marine biotechnology, and related industries—contribute over $2.5 trillion to the global economy annually.
The “Blue Economy”—sustainable use of ocean resources for economic output—represents a large and growing business opportunity in industries like offshore renewable energy, marine biotech, carbon sequestration, AI, aquaculture, and shipping decarbonization.
A new 6-page briefing paper from EDGE, “The Blue Economy: What Every MBA Needs to Know,” summarizes the most promising growth industries within the Blue Economy, drawing on industry publications and investor resources.
