SDG 14

Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development

The world’s oceans – their temperature, chemistry, currents and life – drive natural processes that make the Earth habitable for humankind. Careful management of this global resource is critical to our future.

This SDG has several 2030 targets to which every company can contribute. These targets aim to prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities; sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts by strengthening their resilience, and take action for their restoration; minimize and address the impacts of ocean acidification; effectively regulate harvesting and end destructive fishing practices; and eliminate subsidies that contribute to illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.
