June 16-17, 2015
The evolving Arctic presents substantial economic opportunities for the West Coast maritime industry. To maximize those opportunities, industry must proceed responsibly to ensure that economic opportunities are balanced with environmentally sustainable business practices.
In our 2nd Promise of the Arctic Conference, we’ll examine environmental best practices being developed to protect the pristine waters of the Arctic, respond to the economic and cultural needs of the native populations, and enhance economic opportunities for stakeholders in Alaska and the lower mainland.
We’ll look at the legislative and regulatory climate governing this season’s economic activities in the Arctic, and we’ll hear from those involved in current projects with an eye toward maritime operations.
We’ll also discuss how best to ensure that the communities in which we operate understand the responsible best practices that have made the West Coast maritime industry among the safest, best managed in the world.
If you are involved in maritime transportation, construction or resource extraction, the Promise of the Arctic has been developed to help you maximize the economic potential of the far north.
