What is Marine Positive?

Marine Positive is a process developed by Susannah Stewart, Allard Marx and Roberto Danovaro to achieve the following:

1. Attribute a monetary value to the damage inflicted by pollutants coming from one identified source into a body of water.

2. Identify ways of mitigating that damage and strategies to implement them 

3. Allocate funds from the client to reparative projects in the ocean to over-compensate for the damage value. i.e. an ultra-offset. Projects may be coral nurseries, sea grass plantations or mangroves.

4. Certify the company or products as marine positive on an annual basis and assist in maximising communications impact of same.
