Sustainable development and the sea

SUDG joint statement with conservation bodies

SUDG has worked closely with Marine Conservation Society, WWF, the Wildlife Trusts and RSPB for a number of years to find closer ways of working to protect the marine environment. In support of this we have recently prepared a joint statement which sets out the shared goals of marine industry and conservation and urges Government to make sure that the network of Marine Protection Areas is properly established, resourced and managed. The industries represented in SUDG are essential to economic growth in the sea but through working with conservation, we all believe that the environment can also be protected and improved. Please let us know your views about the joint statement.Joint Statement May 2016
