Blue Carbon & The Regeneration of Ecosystems
Did you know that a single Hong Kong oyster can filter up to 30 liters of water per hour, while sequestering carbon in its fast-growing body? That is just one example of the amazing potential blue carbon projects hold as a climate solution. Join this eye-opening discussion to explore how local entrepreneurs and researchers are piloting the future of offshore biomass, solar, and hydrogen production.
- How can our industries (energy, logistics, building, etc.) support blue carbon projects to attract significant investment, in order to grow from academic research to global carbon sequestration impact?
- Nature-based and/or industry-solution? What type of blue carbon projects should the industry support?
- Reach out to your community and network to understand blue carbon projects on the ground and ask how you can help
- Talk to your regulation and policy representatives about standardizing recognition methodology for blue carbon projects
