“To be truly green, we must also think blue.”

- Virginijus Sinkevičius
(Commissioner for the Environment,
Fisheries and Maritime Affairs)


On Monday, the European Commission proposed a new approach for a sustainable blue economy in the EU for the industries and sectors related to oceans, seas and coasts. In order to ensure inclusive and holistic recovery from the pandemic while also achieving the goals set out in the European Green Deal, the focus on a sustainable blue economy is crucial. As per the recently published communication, the Commission is aiming to achieve the objectives of climate neutrality and to switch to a circular economy. It also aims at improving management of space at sea as well as ensuring sustainable food production. In addition, the Commission along with the European Investment Bank will also be increasing cooperation on a sustainable blue economy.

Arthur’s Legal, Strategies & Systems has consistently been working towards achieving results similar to those set out in the European Green Deal with a focus not just on life on land but also life below water. The firm is also a partner to the H2020 project DigiCirc which brings companies of all sizes together in tandem with public bodies and researchers to work together to address an important need: making our economy more sustainable.
