Our Ocean’s uses are multiple and constantly growing. Awareness of human activities impacts on the Ocean has raised in the business sector. But best efforts by a single company, or an entire industry sector, are not enough to secure Ocean health. Coordinated efforts need a structure, a platform, and processes for leadership and collaboration. The Ocean Business Community meets at the Sustainable Ocean Summit, a renowned, yearly conference. This event provides a global platform for leading organizations to advance the development and implementation of industry-driven solutions to Ocean sustainability challenges. SOS 2017 focused on Ocean Business Community leadership in achieving the U.N. “Ocean” Sustainable Development Goal.
