Greenbackers 2nd Report on Delivery of The Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Principles (The Principles)

Many of the technologies that we look at are closely connected to the developing Blue Economy. Companies like C-Power, Redstack, Gazelle, Triton, Armour Edge, Grafmarine and Zelim and there are more in our pipeline. That is one reason why Greenbackers were early signatories of the Principles.

They were launched in 2018, and are the world’s first global guiding framework for banks, insurers and investors to finance a sustainable blue economy. They promote the implementation of SDG 14 (Life Below Water), and set out ocean-specific standards, allowing the financial industry to mainstream sustainability of ocean-based sectors. The principles were developed by the European Commission, WWF, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the European Investment Bank (EIB) and are hosted by UNEP FI as part of the Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Initiative.

We would urge all to explore the Details of the Principles and to give serious consideration to signing up – Click Here to Sign the Principles

We are proud to publish our second report on how we are interacting with the Principles in the work that we do.
