Ocean Business Projections to 2030 at WOC Sustainable Ocean Summit

Ocean Industry Status, Trends and Projections for All Major Business Sectors Will Be Presented at World Ocean Council’s SOS 2017 in Relation to U.N. Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

SOS2017 bannerwebv3The WOC Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS) is the only international ocean event of any kind to provide a global review of economic activity for all the principle areas of ocean commercial use.

The “Ocean 2030” session at SOS 2017 (Halifax 29 Nov-1 Dec) will feature authoritative presentations by global experts on major ocean business sectors.

The SOS 2017 “Ocean 2030” session will address the status, trends and projections for:

  • Shipping
  • Offshore Oil and Gas
  • Fisheries
  • Aquaculture
  • Offshore Wind Energy
  • Ocean Renewable Energy
  • Cruise Tourism
  • Submarine Cables
  • Seabed Mining
  • Human Habitation on the Ocean

The SOS 2017 will link this unprecedented collation of information on ocean economic activity to the WOC efforts to work with the ocean business community to develop SDG objectives and metrics.

The Ocean 2030 sessions at SOS 2017 will consider the opportunities and risks that future ocean use creates for each sector, for the collective ocean business community, for the ocean economy overall, and for the ocean itself. Sustainable development of the global ocean commons cannot be achieved without understanding and engaging ocean users, and without leadership and collaboration on the part of responsible ocean companies.
