On 19 to 20 January 2010, the
Government of the Philippines and WWF organised an inspirational international business event for the Coral Triangle. The focus: to create exciting opportunities for sustainability as the future of economic health and profit
in the region.
The Summit aimed to inspire partnerships that drive innovation and attract sustainable investment by bringing together those businesses that rely on a healthy marine environment and resources
(tuna, live reef fish and travel and tourism) in the Coral Triangle.

What is the Coral Triangle?
Covering just 1% of the earth’s surface, the Coral Triangle
includes 30% of the world’s coral reefs, 76% of its reef-building coral species as well as vital spawning grounds for tuna.
The region sustains the lives of more than 120 million people, along with thousands of small and medium businesses that heavily rely on healthy marine environments and resources.
