European Blue Economy report 2023 published


The European Commission just published the 2023 edition of the European Blue Economy report. This report is the annual flagship publication, and gives an overview of how the economic sectors in EU have performed in relation to oceans and the coastal environment.

The 2023 version highlights the evolution of the blue economy sectors since 2010, and shows that despite negative impacts of the COVID19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, most of the analysed sectors increased their economic performances. The new edition includes now a chapter on the Energy Transition in the Blue Economy, and a section dedicated to Climate Change and Coastal Impact.

Finally, the European Blue Economy report will be connected to and incorporated into the EU Blue Economy Observatory, which offers more frequent and dynamic updates to the blue economy data.
