World Ocean Summit, Mexico 2018

Date: 07-Mar-18 to 09-Mar-18
Location: Fairmont Mayakoba, Riviera Maya / Mexico
Category: Banking, Finance & Investment Conferences & Trade Fairs

Since 2012 the World Ocean Summit has sought to harmonise the sometimes dissonant perspectives of business, government and civil society on how we use our troubled seas. The World Ocean Summit 2018 will expand into a wider, more ambitious World Ocean Initiative focused on five pillars: sustainable fisheries, pollution, climate change, finance and technology. The vision of the World Ocean Initiative is an ocean in robust health and with a vital economy; the initiative's purpose is to define investment framework for scaling responses in the areas of plastics and pollution, sustainable fisheries and climate change, and accelerate the transition to sustainable use of the ocean.. If 2017 is the year of big promises, 2018 must be about delivery.

What role will you play?

At the World Ocean Summit 2018, you will:
• Meet with impact investors, decision-makers, government officials, and leaders in environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) who can drive scalable, sustainable investment in the ocean.
• Define investment frameworks, with the ocean community, for scaling responses in the areas of plastics and pollution, sustainable fisheries and climate change.
• Build strategic partnerships with the public and private sectors to build sustainable best practices within your organisation, country or industry, and lead change.

What's new for 2018?
• An extension of the Word Ocean Summit 2017, deepening on the issue of financing
• Focus on measurement providing accountability of blue initiatives in the areas of fisheries, pollution and climate change
• The first business case of the blue economy that drives discussions on investments and growth in the blue economy.
