AT THE HEART OF THE COLLABORATIVE APPROACH

Green Marine Europe supporters both support and encourage the sustainability initiative being undertaken by the maritime industry. These environmental groups, scientific institutions, and government agencies help to shape the environmental agenda and reflect its relevance and credibility.

Beyond Plastic Med

With the impulse of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Tara Ocean Foundation, Surfrider Foundation Europe, the Mava Foundation, and the IUCN, the Beyond Plastic Med (BeMed) initiative was created in 2015 to fight against plastic pollution in the Mediterranean. In January 2019, BeMed became an association under Monegasque law. 

Its missions  are to support and develop a network of Mediterranean stakeholders committed to curbing plastic pollution, to facilitate the implementation of effective and sustainable solutions, and to encourage the sharing of experience and best practices. 

To provide the best possible response to local issues, every year BeMed supports projects aimed at reducing the use of plastic, finding alternatives, improving collection systems, raising awareness, collecting data, mobilizing stakeholders, and helping to introduce new regulations. 

To strengthen its impact, BeMed created in January 2020 its Business Club which brings together companies that want to commit to a plastic-free Mediterranean.

MARIN is now looking at nature-inspired solutions to continue its mission of focusing on an ever safer and cleaner shipping industry, as well as the ocean’s sustainable use in terms of providing food, raw materials, and energy resources.

Its own testing is transitioning to using fewer – but more complex – models with the help of increased digitalization and simulations.

Tara Ocean Foundation

The Tara Ocean Foundation, first recognized public interest foundation in France dedicated to the world’s oceans, is leading a scientific revolution: The Foundation has developed an open, innovative Ocean science that will enable us to predict, anticipate and better manage tomorrow’s climate risks.
