May 23, 2019 - Conrad MacKerron will be speaking in the Confluence Philanthropy Webinar on Exploring Investor Solutions to Restore the Ocean.
An estimated 10-20 million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean every year, endangering over 700 species of marine life and resulting in about $13B in annual losses to the marine ecosystems. How can we protect our ocean, which provides us with more than 50% of the oxygen we breathe and at least $2.5 trillion in goods and services every year? Do investible solutions exist which can combat this problem at scale? What role can impact investing and philanthropy play?
