Synopsis

The growing use of marine areas by an increasing variety of commercial interests from shipping to offshore renewable energy is creating increasingly complex risks from environmental impacts and conflicts in the use of marine space and resources. In turn these raise concerns for other stakeholders that affect the access and "social license" to use marine space and resources. Although many companies are working to tackle sustainability issues, the interconnected, dynamic nature of the marine ecosystem creates unique challenges. The best efforts by a single company or whole industry sector will not be able to address the cumulative environmental impacts of the wide range of ocean industries. An international, cross-sectoral approach to "Corporate Ocean Responsibility" is needed. This book will outline ocean industry leadership and collaboration needs and opportunities in addressing marine environmental issues in support of improved business operations. Topics covered include collaboration on: ocean science/data collection, ocean noise, marine spatial planning, marine invasive species, marine debris, impacts on marine mammals and the Convention on Biological Diversity.
