"The global perspective adopted by this second edition confirms the main findings of the previous study. Sustainability leaders exist; they are more aware and they have developed strategies, innovation and supply chain practices to mitigate their pressures on the ocean. However, the vast majority of companies are locked in, either because they are not aware of marine ecosystem problems, or because they are unable to respond through coherent and effective mitigation actions.

But we are running out of time."
