Back to Blue-a new initiative to promote ocean health

At the eighth annual World Ocean Summit, Yohei Sasakawa, chair of The Nippon Foundation, and Lord Deighton, chair of The Economist Group, signed a memorandum of understanding for Back to Blue, a three-year collaboration between the two organisations to contribute fresh analysis, dialogue and potential solutions around ocean pollution.

The Economist Group and The Nippon Foundation, Japan's leading philanthropic organisation and a champion of ocean science, are launching a multi-year initiative on pollution and ocean health.
