UN Global Compact meeting at Nor-Shipping to map out future ocean solutions

High level global leaders will meet under the auspices of the UN Global Compact at Nor-Shipping 2019 in Oslo on Monday to try and map out future ocean solutions.

The meeting co-hosted by the UN Global Compact and the Norwegian Government will gather together leading politicians, maritime and ocean industry executives, UN representatives, NGOs and other key stakeholders.

The meeting will be led by Lise Kingo, ceo and executive Ddrector of the UN Global Compact, and Torbjørn Røe Isaksen, Norwegian Minister of Trade, with discussionx moderated by Sturla Henriksen, special advisor on ocean, UN Global Compact with an aim to finding sustainable solutions to the use of the world’s oceans across a variety of industry sectors including maritime and shipping.


“The ocean is vital to humanity’s well-being and prosperity, but it faces serious challenges,” Erik Giercksky, head, sustainable ocean business at the UN Global Compact. “In short we need to work together to establish a framework for responsible business practices that can deliver growth, satisfy society’s demands and protect nature. We need to collaborate to build effective global governance — that, in essence, is what this meeting is about.”

Nor-Shipping 2019 will also see the UN Global Compact launch its new report, Global Goals, Ocean Opportunities, which explores a multi-stakeholder approach to how ocean industries can deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while enabling sustainable business growth.
