The World Ocean Council (WOC) and the French Maritime Cluster are organizing an SOS 2019 Pre-Summit Briefing in Paris on 7 October 2019 on “Responsible Finance and the Blue Economy: Opportunities for French Leadership, Collaboration and Action on Ocean Sustainable Development”.
The Briefing is a prelude to the Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS) 2019 (20-22 November, Paris) - “Investing in Ocean Futures: Finance and Innovation for the Blue Economy” - and will bring together representatives of the investment community to consider:
- What is the role of Responsible Finance in addressing the complex, long term, global challenges of ocean sustainable development?
- How can investors best engage and partner with the other components of the investment community to develop successful finance arrangements for ocean sustainable development?
- What are the opportunities for leadership, collaboration and action on ocean sustainable development by the French investment community?
The Briefing is being held as part of the Responsible Finance Week 2019 to create interest and momentum on finance for Corporate Ocean Responsibility in the French investment community. The event is sponsored by WOC Member Norton Rose Fulbright.
