On the 9th of March 2018, at the World Ocean Summit which took place in Mexico, in partnership with the European Investment Bank, the Prince of Wales's International Sustainability Unit and WWF, the Commission launched the Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Principles.

These are voluntary principles that will guide responsible investments to counter the many stresses that oceans are subject to, from overfishing and rising sea levels to plastic pollution.

The Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Karmenu Vella has said: “I am delighted to see the progress in the delivery of this important commitment made at the 2017 Our Ocean Conference hosted by the EU. The importance of having clear guidelines supporting the sustainable development of the blue economy is now widely recognised, and this is encouraging.”
