Climate change is causing unprecedented damage to our ocean and the ecosystems it supports. The ocean is the world’s largest carbon sink and has the ability to deliver up to 21% of the emissions reductions needed to reach net zero CO2 emissions by 2050. Despite this, funding for the ocean comprises just 7% of climate giving, and only 2% of ocean funding is currently directed toward solutions that help combat climate change.
The ICONIQ Impact Ocean Co-Lab is a $50 million collaborative philanthropy fund whose grantees address the root causes of climate change through ocean-based programs and projects.
