The Blueprint for Business Leadership on the SDGs aims to inspire all business — regardless of size, sector or geography — to take leading action in support of the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It illustrates how the five leadership qualities of Ambition, Collaboration, Accountability, Consistency, and Intentional can be applied to a business' strategy, business model, products, supply chain, partnerships, and operations to raise the bar and create impact at scale. The Blueprint is a tool for any business that is ready to advance its principled approach to SDG action to become a leader. This chapter relates specifically to SDG 14.
This article contributes to SDG 14 life below water’s focus on the conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development in the context of deep-seabed mining.

This article contributes to SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production) and SDG 14 (life below land). This paper analyses policies and future strategies necessary for improving the sustainability of China’s seafood consumption.
Global consumption of aquatic foods has been increasing in recent decades but demand outstrips supply. This study evaluated the sustainability of cage production systems for Nile tilapia in the Santa Cruz Reservoir. The results showed that by creating a framework to measure the sustainability of aquaculture production, effects of increasing production can be assessed and measures can be taken to meet SDG 14.2 to sustainably manage and protect marine ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts.
Ocean Observations
The 'Marine Technology and Services Sector Role' track from the Oceanology International 2016 conference provides the latest trends in ocean observing, viewed through the lens of the 'Blue Economy'. Presentations from a range of experts provide new perspectives and identify key trends that will influence future developments. Stewardship of the seas is vital SDG 14.2 to sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts.

Marine Renewables
The Marine Renewables Conference at Oceanology International 2016 heard from industry experts about recent innovations in modelling, surveying and foundation design, and new techniques and technologies in offshore surveying. The conference included presentations on the novel foundation systems which are being deployed to support offshore wind, tidal and wave energy projects globally. Information about latest technologies and techniques support SDG 7 and SDG 14, to harness renewable energy whilst protecting oceans and seas.

Green Shipping
The Green Shipping panel discussion at Oceanology International 2016 explored the impact of invasive species carried across the seas not only inside ships and shipping containers, but also attached to hulls. Invasive species have been identified as one of the four greatest threats to the world’s oceans. Highlighting issues relating to shipping and invasive species helps to advance SDG 14.2 to sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems to avoid significant adverse impacts.

Aquaculture
The Aquaculture Conference at Oceanology International 2016 brought together industry experts to explore the latest challenges faced by the aquaculture sector. The themes explored include fish health, containment, environmental security, marine biofuel development and spatial planning. Advancing techniques in these areas helps to advance SDG 14.4 to effectively regulate harvesting and end overfishing, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing and destructive fishing practices and implement science-based management plans.
This series examines trends in participation in the Caring for Climate initiative, including emissions performance of companies, as well as progress companies have made against the five commitments endorsed by all signatories in the Caring for Climate Leadership Statement. By providing this analysis, Caring for Climate seeks to remind signatories of their progress towards a building a low-carbon society and to encourage greater participation in the initiative, supporting goals 12,13,14 and 15.
This book addresses goals 13 and 14 by discussing conservation and biodiversity factors in freshwater ecosystems
