What a year it was. We started off with a good event in Brussels in February and soon after Europe went into lockdown. Thanks to digital systems and your flexibility we were able to connect and discuss maritime matters. What 2021 has in store for us is yet to be found out but I am looking forward to continue our cooperation and calls and hopefully we can meet after summer.

A few things I would like to share with you and please send me an e-mail or give me a call when you have remarks or questions.

In terms of funding for green projects the draft delegated act linked to the EU Taxonomy for maritime is subject to consultation until today. Many associations and companies shared their views. The delegated act provides criteria on how assess whether a transaction lives up to the EU Taxonomy. Question is whether the criteria do support the energy transition or that they are too rigid. More information can be found via EU taxonomy for sustainable activities | European Commission (europa.eu)

-          Since quite a few of you are interested in better usage of data the data regulation is interesting to follow up on. On the 25th of November the European Commission announced new rules for data and data sharing in order to enhance the competitiveness of the internal market. Please find more via European Data Governance | Shaping Europe’s digital future (europa.eu)

 

-         During our last ENMC meeting we spoke about the mission Starfish that has a focus on healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters. Coordinator is Pascal Lamy, former CEO of the World Trade Organization. The report is worth a read and I would to like to continue our dialogue on this.
