Webinar: Investing for a sustainable blue economy
Updated: Jul 12, 2021
We kicked off 2021 by hosting an event in partnership with Monaco Ocean Week. Monaco Ocean Week is a unifying event organised by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Oceanographic Institute of Monaco, the Centre Scientifique de Monaco, and the Monaco Yacht Club, with the support of the Prince's Government. Monaco Ocean Week provides a unique forum for discussions, meetings, experimentation, and opportunities where ocean conservation takes centre stage.
During our presentation, we discussed how new investors can engage with the emerging technologies, business models, and investment products, including:
The landscape of investment and industry sectors
Pioneering commercial solutions to address ocean economy challenges
Innovative financing structures (blue bonds, conservation finance)
Ocean investing as part of the climate solution
Joining us for the discussion on our speaker panel included:
Damian Payiatakis, Head of Sustainable & Impact Investing (Barclays)
Olivier Wenden, CEO (Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation)
Dr Nathalie Hilmi, Head of Environmental Economics (Centre Scientifique de Monaco)
