The degradation and unsustainable use of the oceans, seas and marine resources poses significant risks to business and at the same time, businesses are discovering tremendous opportunities in tackling this issue. A small but increasing number of companies have started to integrate the conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources into their corporate sustainability strategy and are developing aligned policies and practices. In order to advance further action, commitment and partnerships, the private sector is invited to participate in the upcoming Ocean Conference on 5-9 June 2017.
This webinar will provide participants with an update on the process leading to the Ocean Conference and will highlight opportunities for private sector stakeholders to participate and contribute to this global effort for the implementation of SDG 14.
An additional webinar will be convened respectively on 11 May 2017 to provide participants with updates on Ocean Conference preparation.
