Oceana press conference:
Decarbonising the EU fisheries sector
What: In-person press conference. There will also be the possibility to attend via livestream, with interpretation available in French and Spanish
When: Wednesday 1 February 2023 9:45-10:45 CET
Where: The Press Club Brussels Europe, rue Froissart 95, 1040 Brussels
Why: Several paths exist to achieve the EU's ambition of reducing the fishing sector’s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030, and reaching low carbon by 2050. Oceana’s findings of our new report “A pathway to decarbonise the EU fisheries sector by 2050” intend to feed into the European Commission's imminent strategy to accelerate the EU fisheries sector's energy transition.
Speakers confirmed so far:
- Alexandra Cousteau, Oceana senior advisor
- François Bastardie, Alma Maris Consulting (author of the report)
- Vera Coelho, senior director of advocacy at Oceana in Europe
