Blue Growth: sustainable growth from the oceans, seas and coasts

Public consultation

In March 2012 the European Commission launched a public consultation to get direct input from stakeholders that would feed in the Communication to be adopted in September 2012. The extensive consultation (33 questions) was aimed at gathering the views of entities, individuals and key stakeholders that have an interest in and would like to shape EU actions vis-à-vis the marine and maritime sectors.

In order to provide a more comprehensive background to the initiative, the Commission also published the Third Interim Report of the on-going Blue Growth study “Scenarios and Drivers for Sustainable Growth from the Oceans, Seas and Coasts” pdf - 2 MB [2 MB] .

Contributions were submitted by using an online questionnaire.

The consultation was closed on 11 May 2012. 

Number of responses received to this consultation

66 replies in total were received, with over a third from national and regional government institutions from all around Europe and 14% from private business.
