Why the Sustainable Ocean Summit?
The Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS) is the only global, multi-sectoral platform for leadership companies and organizations to advance the development and implementation of industry-driven solutions to ocean sustainability challenges.
With Singapore celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015 and continuing to advance its significant role in the global maritime economy, SOS 2015 brought together the diverse ocean business community to plan for the next 50 years of Blue Growth, a sustainable ocean economy and responsible ocean business opportunities.
Who organized the Sustainable Ocean Summit?
The SOS was organized by the World Ocean Council (WOC) – the only international business leadership alliance on Corporate Ocean Responsibility.
A steadily growing number of companies from the wide range of ocean industries worldwide are distinguishing themselves as leaders in ocean stewardship and sustainability by becoming WOC Members.
The Marina Mandarin Singapore served as the Host and Hotel Accommodations for SOS 2015.
