Get to know the Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS)
   
 
It is the only international ocean business event to provide a yearly review of status and trends in ocean economic activity. It is organized by the World Ocean Council (WOC).
The SOS is uniquely designed to bring together leadership companies from the diverse Ocean Business Community: shipping, oil and gas, fisheries, aquaculture, seabed mining, tourism, renewable energy, ports, dredging, mining, submarine cables, marine science, engineering and technology, the maritime legal, financial and insurance communities, and others – as well as ocean stakeholders from the government, inter-governmental, academic and environment communities.
Last year, the Sustainable Ocean Summit was held in Rotterdam. Over 200 participants gathered to discuss the role of the ocean business community in addressing critical marine environment and sustainability challenges.
SOS 2016 brought together a wide range of industries involved in the use of marine space and marine resources. Attendees were primarily high-ranking executives and senior environment and sustainability officers from the Ocean Business Community. Representatives of international organizations, government agencies, and academic research institutions were also in attendance.
The theme of SOS 2016 was “Ocean 2030: Sustainable Development Goals and the Ocean Business Community”. The conference sought to build on the highly successful discussions held at SOS 2010 in Belfast, SOS 2013 in Washington DC and SOS 2015 in Singapore.
