Blue Latitudes unites science, policy, and communications to create innovative solutions for the complex ecological challenges associated with offshore structures.
Blue Latitudes, founded in 2015 by Amber Jackson and Emily Hazelwood, is a certified women-owned marine environmental consulting firm. In 2018, Amber and Emily were listed on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in the energy sector for their efforts with Blue Latitudes to develop sustainable, creative, and cost-effective solutions for the environmental issues that surround the offshore energy industry.
Our vision at Blue Latitudes is to find silver linings in our oceans at the intersection of industry and the environment. Key examples of our work include re-purposing offshore infrastructure as artificial reefs and utilizing routine ROV maintenance surveys on offshore infrastructure to develop complex biological baselines. We combine our industry expertise with research-based insights and technical tools to assess offshore infrastructure on a case-by-case basis to determine the best environmental, economic, and socially responsible outcomes available.
