Blue Carbon Info Session

Join us on Tuesday, March 22, to learn about blue carbon and hear from start-ups who have products that reduce or store carbon in the ocean

Blue carbon is the term for carbon captured by the world’s ocean and coastal ecosystems. Our ocean and coasts provide a natural way of reducing the impact of greenhouse gases on our atmosphere, through sequestration of this carbon.
