Marilu Cristina Flores, Investable Oceans
What makes investable oceans different from the many other organizations doing good work for our oceans?
While we are an active ocean hub that celebrates the ocean and brings you into the blue with us, there’s more than that. We’re focused on active, market-based solutions that help our blue planet. We do this by simplifying and accelerating sustainable investments in oceans. We work across all asset classes and sectors of the Blue Economy, from plastics to aquaculture, tourism to renewable energy.
We amplify and accelerate solutions that help design a healthier blue planet.
“Celebrating the ocean, amplifying sustainable solutions, and buying into the blue”
What Is The “Blue Economy”?
More than just a buzzword, the “Blue Economy” refers to the range of ways our ocean and coastal resources benefit our societies economically. Some examples of Blue Economy businesses are fisheries, aquaculture, tourism, shipping, and renewable energy development. Some of our favorite blue economy solutions for a more sustainable future include aquaculture, electric boats, and carbon sequestration projects.
Where We Come In
Here, at Investable Oceans, we function as an investment hub. We bring market-based capital to the ocean.
