When President Biden and Vice President Harris took office, they pledged to restore America’s climate leadership at home and abroad – and every day since, the Biden-Harris Administration has led and delivered on the most ambitious climate agenda in history. Last year, the White House released the first-ever Ocean Climate Action Plan (OCAP), a groundbreaking roadmap to harness the power and capacity of the ocean to address the climate crisis.

As the first comprehensive U.S. strategy to use the power of the ocean and coasts to address and respond to the changing climate, the OCAP has furthered Administration priorities on tackling climate change, advancing equity and justice, and bolstering the U.S. economy. Highlights from the past year of accomplishments include advancing environmental justice through the release of the first ever Ocean Justice Strategy, scaling up the offshore wind energy industry, advancing the decarbonization of the U.S. marine transportation system through a $3 billion investment in clean U.S. ports, enhancing community resilience to ocean change through a historic $2.6 billion framework, and addressing the impacts of a changing climate through the establishment of a Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal Fast Track Action Committee.

View the full progress report outlining one year of progress since the release of the OCAP.
