Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Principles

To guide sustainable Blue Economy decisions, 14 voluntary Principles have been proposed for the finance and investment community. These complement existing frameworks in sustainable finance, and recognise the importance of compliance, transparency and disclosure, as well as the specific challenges of investment in the context of the ocean. The 14 Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Principles are designed to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to the management of the ocean, in particular Goal 14 ("Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development"). They are also designed to be compliant with IFC Performance Standards and EIB Environmental and Social Principles and Standards.
