ICOMIA have released the most recent Sustainability Guide which was previously known as the Environment Guide. Within this guide any areas which have had a change with either new information or updates, have been highlighted in blue.
The guide features clear and concise outlines of the latest environment legislation affecting the EU, US, Asia and Australia, plus international organisations such as the International Maritime Organisation. The guide explains – in simple terms – what legislation is; why it has been imposed; when it will take effect; who it may affect and how it may affect them – making it an invaluable tool for businesses, associations and organisations operating in the global recreational marine industry.
The guide covers areas like Australia’s climate change; Recycling and Waste Reduction Bill; Work Health and Safety Regulations (WHS Act); The European Green Deal; COM/2019/640 final; EU Zero Pollution Action Plan (a key deliverable of the European Green Deal); Industry related legislative developments within USA and Canada, plus many other topics.
We recommend that our members who operate in any of the areas which have been stated above take the time to look through the guide, to see if any of the updates and new information that has been included in the Guide have an effect on the work that they are doing.
