The Barcelona Nautical Cluster and the TecnoCampus de Mataró of the UPF, led by the Circular Economy Chair, have presented the conclusions of a study on the link between the circular economy and the nautical sector. The study, led by the director of the department, Sònia Llorens, has specifically analyzed the value chain in this area and defined a strategic plan.
So, the conclusions establish 5 axes of work to apply new circular economy strategies to nautical:
A beautiful and clean environment adapted to climate change.
Objective: To have a biologically regenerated coastal marine environment that is resilient to climate change.
More circular and sustainable marinas.
Objective: Move towards marina models with low environmental impact and more circular.
Objective: To promote the sustainable innovation of boats and their end-of-life recovery.
Conscious and respectful users
Objective: Increase social awareness towards the natural environment and responsible consumption and attitude.
Empowerment of the nautical ecosystem
Objective: Develop tools for the empowerment of the sector in sustainability, circular economy and regenerative economy.
The study involved a work process of almost two years in which the sector was analyzed and different work sessions were held with the members of the Cluster.
The project has received the support of the Department of Climate Action of the Generalitat and the Waste Agency of Catalonia.
