Blue economy sectors have a strong responsibility to reduce or eliminate their carbon and biodiversity footprints. This is the opportunity for the EU to become a “blue leader” with the most innovative and sustainable blue economy in the world
Isabelle Garzon, Director of Studies and Development at Europe Jacques Delors:
"There is no sustainable blue economy without strong science and strong governance"
We have to act at 3 levels:
- EU level: The institutions must go ahead with the adoption of the Mission Starfish 2030 proposals.
- Private investment: We need to support innovators and investors in minimising the risks they take to change their business model.
- Societal mobilisation: we need a shift in society, in our way of thinking. To do so, all citizen and educational initiatives that may be supported are welcome.
