An ocean of green opportunities in the Coral Triangle

By forging an alliance with WWF, businesses in the seafood and tourism sectors can ensure they grow sustainably while allowing the Coral Triangle’s biodiversity to thrive. Here’s how.

Without measures to implement best practices on environmental management, businesses risk losing market share, access to capital, and the goodwill needed to operate profitably.

They also put at risk the Coral Triangle’s future as the world’s most biologically diverse marine region.

Working with companies that show a genuine environmental commitment and those ready to implement gradual changes in their business, WWF can support efforts towards long-term business and environmental sustainability.

Benefits of collaborating with WWF

  • Positive reputation and publicity opportunities
  • Access to technical know-how
  • Networking with other businesses in the same sector
  • New market opportunities downstream
