As Green Marine Europe is both an individual project (each candidate 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.
Armateurs de France is the professional organization representing French shipping and maritime services companies. Spokesperson for a cutting-edge and diversified industry, it represents 26,000 direct jobs in France. Its mission: to build a framework conducive to the development of the maritime economy and employment in France, in a context of strong international competition, by actively defending the interests of the profession in front of the relevant local, national and international bodies.
The Royal Association of Netherlands Shipowners brings those shipping companies who want to form a united front together in order to protect and promote their common interests on a national, European and global level. While the shipping industry consists of various sectors, the KVNR represents shipping companies involved in merchant shipping and sea towage. The interests of the fishing and pleasure craft sectors are not covered by the KVNR.
The French Maritime Cluster brings together all the players in the maritime ecosystem, from industry to all types of maritime services and activities. It is currently composed of more than 440 entities: companies of all sizes, competitiveness clusters, federations and associations, laboratories and research centers, schools, and training organizations, local authorities and economic players, and the French Navy. The CMF serves its members as a facilitator for the development of their business and the emergence of new innovative projects. It supports its members in the sustainable and responsible development of their activities and projects, in France and abroad.
