As Green Marine Europe is both an individual project (each participant pledges to improve its environmental performance) and a marine industry group undertaking, industry associations have a crucial role to play vis-à-vis their members.

In addition to improving the industry’s environmental performance, Green Marine Europe seeks to create and strengthen dialogue and joint efforts between the stakeholders and partners that support the industry in its sustainable development approach, namely: governments, environmental groups, research centres, etc.
