Blue Economy Initiative

Blue Economy InitiativeFounded by the Royal Bank of Canada, the Canadian Water Network, and The Gordon Foundation, the Blue Economy Initiative aims to ensure Canada becomes a global leader in water use and sustainability.

The Blue Economy Initiative looks at water sustainability from a new perspective – understanding the economic opportunities and benefits of decisions about water management. It seeks to understand the value of water to the Canadian economy, the economic risks that will escalate if it is mismanaged, and the clear economic benefits that could be realized if it is managed astutely.
