SEALAB is dedicated to contributing to sustainable development, and safeguarding the ocean space is integral to our vision of giving everyone the opportunity to see under water. We are focused on helping industries manage the ocean space responsibly, thus laying the foundations for sustainable growth and development. Our corporate social responsibility standards cover environmental, social and economic sustainability, proven through ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications.
The ocean space is a key resource for energy, food, minerals, leisure, and transportation. It represents huge potential for value creation. Yet data and knowledge about the ocean space is scarce, and concerns are rising over its’ health and sustainability. SEALAB solutions are not just investments in growth and economic sustainability, they provide a leap in data acquisition and knowledge creation about human impact on the world’s largest ecosystems.
In addition to the specific goal of sustainable management of sea life (SDG 14), activities related to the sea make important contributions to other goals, such as; food security (SDG 2), responsible consumption and production (SDG 12), employment and economic growth (SDG 8), innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9) and climate action (SDG 13).
Globally, the market value of marine and coastal resources and industries is estimated at $3 trillion per year or about 5 per cent of global GDP.
Over three billion people depend on marine and coastal biodiversity for their livelihoods.
Oceans cover three quarters of the Earth’s surface, contain 97 per cent of the Earth’s water, and represent 99 per cent of the living space on the planet by volume.
SEALAB is focused on more than just digitization of the ocean space. We want to ensure that everything we do is done in the right way, and ultimately leads to positive change. SEALAB is therefore running a healthy business with a strong focus on the environment, economy and the responsibility for our employees and society.
