Welcome to the Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Initiative, a UN-convened global community focused on the intersection between private finance and ocean health, supporting the implementation of the Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Principles.
We work across the financial community to provide guidance and frameworks to ensure investment, underwriting and lending activities are aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG 14), ‘life below water’ enabling financial institutions to rebuild ocean prosperity, restore biodiversity and regenerate ocean health.
This work is generously supported by the European Commission and the European Investment Bank as well as by the Swedish Government via the UN Environment Programme Sustainable Blue Economy Initiative. Read more about the UN Environment Programme’s work on Oceans & Seas.
