Since 1978, World Maritime Day raises awareness about the shipping industry and its global role. The theme for this year is “new technologies for greener shipping” which makes us reflect on the importance of a sustainable maritime sector 🚢
Recently there has been a significant shift in understanding the role that marine and coastal environments play in sustainable development. Today we know that oceans are vital for regulating the climate, and that oceans are the biggest carbon sink in the world.
Working for a sustainable Blue economy implies a better balance in the use of ocean resources for economic growth, preserving the health of the ocean ecosystem.
