Paul Holthus founded the World Ocean Council (WOC) – the international business leadership alliance on ocean sustainable development and Blue Economy– to bring together ocean investors, innovators and industries (shipping, fisheries, aquaculture, tourism, energy, ports, etc.) for ocean leadership, collaboration and action. The WOC monthly “Ocean Investor Roundtable” and annual “Global Blue Finance Summit” convene the ocean investment community. The Sustainable Ocean Summit is the premier annual high-level global ocean business sustainability event.
