Blue Circular Economy ROOM 2

7 June 2023


The “blue economy” is a huge segment of the global economy and we are fully aware of the impact of its activities on both the oceans and the land and, therefore, the importance of making it as sustainable as possible to support the European green transition. In this context, limiting environmental damages is not enough: alongside the effort to reduce emissions, it is necessary to develop circular and regenerative models that enable nature-based solutions with vitality and health for economic systems, generating new business opportunities for all the blue economy players and significantly benefiting marine ecosystems. The session will also focus on the crucial role of ports in reducing marine litter through effective waste management.
