Australia’s and New Zealand’s blue economy participants are clearly well-placed to take advantage of their access to the natural capital of the ocean in the immature but emerging global Ocean-based carbon markets.

Growing awareness of ocean-based and ocean-derived negative emissions technologies and associated potential project developments, could benefit blue economy stakeholders, coastal communities with jobs and skills plus other co-benefits. These will help address the direct physical impacts of climate change, while claiming the trillions of dollars of investment opportunities available now and reducing barriers to trade as lower emissions economies.

The reports produced for this study are intended for a broad audience, and to help describe an evolving opportunity with a variety of opinions and levels of complexity. Its goal is the identification of active and potential participants/ stakeholders and their involvement in the space of blue and ocean carbon. The reports are intended to support stakeholders to navigate their near and longer-term decision making and participation opportunities.
