Lead institution:

RespectOcean – France

The RespectOcean association is developing a “Marine biodiversity and economy” program in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, as part of “Committed Partner for Nature” recognition from the French Ministry of Ecological Transition. 

RespectOcean wishes to encourage the best consideration of issues related to marine and coastal biodiversity by the economic world. 

The goals are to: 

  • Develop tools and feedback to help companies (members and non-members of the association) to better understand the different impacts of economic activities on marine and coastal ecosystems; 
  • List, deepen and highlight the solutions, brought by economic actors, which allow the preservation and/or restoration of ecosystems; and 
  • Dialogue with the various stakeholders to better take into account the impacts and seek solutions with positive impacts on marine and coastal biodiversity. 

Start Date: 01/04/2022
End Date: 01/04/2025
