Water: Carbon Sinking Kelp Farms

Cambridge Associates

Oceans make up 72% of the earth’s surface and have absorbed around 40% of carbon emissions since 1840. As such, investors are increasingly putting capital to work in ocean-based businesses to both mitigate climate change and enhance the Blue Economy—but how? In this episode, we visit Running Tide in Portland, ME to see this concept in action. They use advanced aquatic growing systems and data science to grow shellfish and kelp forests. The result? A highly nutritious, sustainable protein and a natural carbon removal system. Join us to dissect this topic with Marty Odlin and Adam Baske (Running Tide); Marc von Keitz (Grantham Foundation for Protection of the Environment); Sidney McLaurin (Material Impact); and Sarah Edwards (Cambridge Associates).
