Oceans

We invest in the transition of the existing blue economy to an improved system that supports positive climate outcomes and market-rate financial returns.

Despite the global influence that oceans have on all major economies and industries, they have been an area of underinvestment. But the paradigm is changing. 

Our Approach

Blue Foods

Resource scarcity, warming seas and a growing population and middle class will continue to drive demand for sustainable seafood and alternative choices while ensuring a vibrant and sustainable wild ocean ecosystem.

Blue Biotech and Materials

We have discovered only a fraction of the materials and molecules in the ocean with transformative potential for human and planetary health. Sustainable exploration and harvesting of ocean materials is an opportunity space with exponential potential.

Ocean Intelligence

Advancements in digital, data-driven technologies are enabling the transformation of the existing blue economy. Examples of enabling technologies include earth observation, software, sensing, data integration and predictive analytics.

Decarbonization

Industry and government efforts to decarbonize the global economy will have a profound effect on intensive industries that operate on the ocean as well as the ocean itself as the largest carbon sink.

We believe that the oceans sector is in the renaissance period of innovation, presenting extensive investable opportunities that have the potential to drive outsized change across the interconnected global economy.
