Protecting Seas & Oceans

Protecting Ocean Ecosystems and Maritime Investments

Protecting seas
Water covers some 70 percent of the surface of the earth, and all life on our planet needs water to survive. Today, over 90 percent of world trade is carried out using international shipping lanes, and some 50,000 vessels traverse these routes. Whilst they may be vital for trade and transportation, the earth’s seas, oceans and other waterways are also highly sensitive ecosystems that need protection.
