EU vows to develop a sustainable blue economy

Friday, 05 21 2021, Category: Nature, Country: Europe
The European Commission proposed on May 17 a new approach for a sustainable blue economy in the EU for the industries and sectors related to oceans, seas and coasts.

According to the Commission, a sustainable blue economy is essential to achieving the objectives of the European Green Deal and ensuring a green and inclusive recovery from the pandemic.

Commission Executive Vice-President for the Green Deal Frans Timmermans noted that healthy oceans are a precondition for a thriving blue economy. “Pollution, overfishing and habitat destruction, coupled with the effects of the climate crisis, all threaten the rich marine biodiversity that the blue economy depends on. We must change tack and develop a sustainable blue economy where environmental protection and economic activities go hand in hand,” Timmermans said.

EU Environment, Fisheries and Maritime Affairs Commissioner Virginijus Sinkevicius reminded that the pandemic has hit the marine economy sectors in different, but profound ways. “We have an opportunity to start afresh, and we want to make sure that the recovery shifts the focus from mere exploitation to sustainability and resilience. Thus to be truly green, we must also think blue,” he said.

All blue economy sectors including fisheries, aquaculture, coastal tourism, maritime transport, port activities and shipbuilding will have to reduce their environmental and climate impact, the Commission said, adding that tackling the climate and biodiversity crises requires healthy seas and a sustainable use of their resources to create alternatives to fossil fuels and traditional food production.
