The World Ocean Council (WOC) will be hosting the second Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS 2013), which is due to be held in Washington DC on 22-24 April 2013.

Entitled 'Oceans 2050: Sustainable Ocean – Sustainable Business', the event will start with a cross-sectoral panel of senior executives from oil and gas, shipping, fisheries, aquaculture, offshore renewable energy, and science and technology for the Ocean Executive Forum on industry leadership and collaboration.

The Ocean Executive Forum panelists will include:
- Steve Carmel, Senior Vice President, Maersk Line Ltd (shipping)
- Jeffrey Grybowski, CEO, Deepwater Wind (offshore renewable energy)
- Gary Isaksen, Manager, Global Ocean Science & Policy, ExxonMobil (oil and gas)
- Robert Orr, CEO, Cuna del Mar (aquaculture)
- Mikael Thinghuus, CEO, Royal Greenland (fisheries)
- Dawn Wright, Chief Scientist, ESRI (science/technology)

The multi-industry panel will consider private sector challenges and opportunities for corporate ocean responsibility while at the same time responding to the growing need for ocean energy, food, transport and information.

Preceding the main event, a workshop entitled 'Oceans 2050 – Drivers, Trends and Scenarios', held on 22 April, will provide input to the Ocean Executive Forum. Leadership companies are invited to this half-day workshop, which will aim to identify the constraints and opportunities affecting future ocean operations and the scenarios for responsible use and sustainable seas in future decades.

SOS 2013 is designed to attract leadership companies from the diverse range of ocean industries: shipping, oil and gas, fisheries, aquaculture, tourism, offshore renewable energy, ports, dredging, mining, cables and pipelines, 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.
