The general rankings tab exhibits the efficiency of the examined
economies relative to one another and aggregates scores generated
throughout the next 4 pillars: ocean atmosphere, marine exercise,
know-how innovation, and coverage and regulation.
This pillar ranks every nation in line with its ranges of
marine water contamination, its plastic recycling efforts, the
CO2 emissions of its marine actions (relative to the dimensions
of its economic system), and the current change of complete emissions.
This pillar ranks every nation on the sustainability of its
marine actions, together with transport, fishing, and guarded
This pillar ranks every nation on its contribution to ocean
sustainable know-how analysis and growth, together with
expenditure, patents, and startups.
This pillar ranks every nation on its stance on ocean
sustainability-related coverage and regulation, together with
national-level insurance policies, taxes, charges, and subsidies, and the
implementation of worldwide marine regulation.

Methodology: The Blue Expertise Barometer 2022/23
Now in its second 12 months, the Blue Expertise Barometer assesses and ranks how every of the world’s largest
maritime economies promotes and develops blue (marine-centered) applied sciences that assist reverse the affect of
local weather change on ocean ecosystems, and the way they leverage ocean-based assets to scale back greenhouse gases and
different results of local weather change.
To construct the index, MIT Expertise Overview Insights compiled 20 quantitative and qualitative knowledge indicators
for 66 international locations and territories with coastlines and maritime economies. This included evaluation of choose
datasets and first analysis interviews with world blue know-how innovators, policymakers, and
worldwide ocean sustainability organizations. By way of development evaluation, analysis, and a consultative
peer-review course of with a number of material specialists, weighting assumptions have been assigned to find out the
relative significance of every indicator’s affect on a rustic’s blue know-how management.
These indicators measure how every nation or territory’s financial and maritime industries have affected its
marine atmosphere and the way shortly they’ve developed and deployed applied sciences that assist enhance ocean
well being outcomes. Coverage and regulatory adherence components have been thought of, significantly the observance of
worldwide treaties on fishing and marine safety legal guidelines.
The indications are organized into 4 pillars, which consider metrics round a sustainability theme. Every
indicator is scored from 1 to 10 (10 being one of the best efficiency) and is weighted for its contribution to its
respective pillar. Every pillar is weighted to find out its significance within the general rating. As these analysis
efforts heart on international locations creating blue know-how to advertise ocean well being, the know-how pillar is
ranked highest, at 50% of the general rating.
The 4 pillars of the Blue Expertise Barometer are:
Carbon emissions ensuing from maritime actions and their relative development. Metrics on this pillar additionally
assess every nation’s efforts to mitigate ocean air pollution and improve ocean ecosystem well being.
Efforts to advertise sustainable fishing actions and enhance and preserve marine protected areas.
Progress in fostering the event of sustainable ocean applied sciences throughout a number of related fields:
- Clear innovation scores from MIT Expertise Overview Insights’ Inexperienced Future Index 2022.
- A tally of maritime-relevant patents and know-how startups.
- An evaluation of every economic system’s use of applied sciences and tech-enabled processes that facilitate ocean
