True Blue

Oceans are the lifeblood of the planet. They hold 97% of the Earth’s water, produce more than half of the oxygen in the atmosphere and absorb the most carbon from it. Through our “Blue” Stewardship program, BHC is raising awareness and driving efforts to conserve and defend this vital natural resource.




A Clear Sense of Purpose

At BHC we respect the ocean that gives our business purpose and we truly understand the importance of preserving and defending this crucial shared resource. With the unprecedented success of the Boston Harbor Cleanup, we’ve seen firsthand what Blue” policies can do.  We’re proud to provide civic leadership and support to non-profits and organizations furthering ocean conservation; sea level rise adaptation and mitigation; responsible use of our waterways; and the preservation of and access to our natural Blue resources.
