Climate change and the ocean
Climate breakdown presents one of the greatest challenges in human history. We must act now to avoid catastrophe.
Our ocean is a hero in the fight against climate change. It plays an important role in the global carbon cycle and is responsible for capturing and storing around 25% of the CO2 we release into the atmosphere.
But we have not respected the ocean. Its ecosystems that regulate our climate are increasingly threatened by the way we use them.
A healthy planet needs a healthy ocean. But right now ocean ecosystems that regulate our climate are under threat. We must take urgent action.

Investing in ocean-based climate solutions
Our planet is facing a climate emergency, and time is running out to reverse the terrible damage that we’re doing to the natural world. It’s time to invest in the ocean to fight the climate crisis.
Ocean pollution and the climate crisis
It's a common misconception that marine pollution and the climate crisis are completely separate issues – but they're actually fundamentally linked. We must move from a single-use society to a circular economy that's free from harmful chemicals if we want to protect the planet.
Climate and fishing
Our ocean's health is vital in tackling the climate crisis and all industries operating across our seas have a role to play.
