IPSO’s ambition is to drive faster and more effective action to protect the ocean by increasing our understanding of its role at the Earth System level and the cumulative impact of the multiple stressors exerted upon it.

IPSO’s work has a strong scientific basis, which it then proactively communicates to ensure it has an impact in the world. To this end, IPSO translates the science into accessible forms, construct campaigns and seeks opportunities to bring it to the widest possible attention and pursue solutions to the ocean crisis.
