Washington D.C. - April 22-24, 2013

The Sustainable Ocean Summit 2013 (SOS 2013), organized by the World Ocean Council (WOC), is an international ocean business community gathering dedicated to industry leadership and collaboration in developing solutions to ocean sustainability challenges.

The theme of SOS 2013 is “Oceans 2050–The Ocean Business Community and Sustainable Seas.” The SOS is designed for the diverse range of ocean industries: shipping, oil and gas, fisheries, aquaculture, tourism, offshore renewable energy, ports, dredging, mining, cables and pipelines, marine science, engineering and technology, the maritime legal, financial and insurance communities and others. If space permits, SOS is also open to ocean stakeholders from the government, inter-governmental, academic and environment communities.

SOS 2013 will address priorities for cross-sectoral industry leadership and collaboration in ocean sustainability over the coming years, including ocean policy, regulations and governance; marine spatial planning; the role of industries in ocean and climate observations; biofouling, biosecurity and invasive species; responsible use of the Arctic; sound and marine life; marine debris; marine mammal interactions; the role of finance, insurance and legal sectors in ocean sustainability.

-Smart Ocean/Smart Industries: Scaling Up Industry Observations of Ocean, Weather and Climate
