Unlocking the potential of blue carbon

In order to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050 at the latest, the creation and restoration of carbon sinks via nature-based solutions will be of paramount importance.

Coastal ecosystems, with their enormous capacity for carbon storage could prove to be a vital part of the solution. The carbon captured in these ecosystems (e.g mangroves, marshes and seagrass beds) is called Blue Carbon.

  • What is the carbon storage potential of coastal ecosystems?
  • What economic tools can be used to protect and restore them?
  • How do we mobilise the finance needed to unlock its potential?

To answer these questions, our EcoAct experts analyse of the risks and opportunities of blue carbon in this factsheet.
