The Ocean Foundation and our own Ben Scheelk were featured in the new GreenBiz article, “Blue carbon will be the next frontier of carbon crediting”, about the business opportunities behind blue carbon projects and offsets. Check it out below and view our Blue Resilience Initiative for more information.
“I think [blue carbon] got a lot of finance people excited because they see a business opportunity. But there’s more to the interest in blue carbon than just the numbers, thinking holistically about all of the different ecosystem services and co-benefits afforded by coastal habitats that go above and beyond carbon in many ways. It’s not just about climate change mitigation here. It’s also about adaptation.”Ben Scheelk | Program OFficer, The Ocean Foundation
