The ocean covers more than 70 % of the Earth’s surface and supports nearly every aspect of our lives. It is responsible for 50 % of the oxygen we breathe and provides food and livelihoods for over 3.5 billion people. The ocean also captures approximately 25 % of all human-made carbon emissions, making it one of the planet's most efficient carbon sinks.
Fugro is proud to lead private industry in support of two global ocean science initiatives that aim to fill the sizeable gaps that currently exist in ocean data, information, and knowledge. Their success will help reverse the cycle of decline in ocean health and support the development of a sustainable ocean economy globally.
