Blue Carbon & The Regeneration of Ecosystems

Day 1 - 5th Oct | 16:50 - 17:20

Location: Sustainable Partnership Theatre

Decarbonisation

Overview

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.

Learnings

  • 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?

Post Event Actions

  • 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
