Paris conference �Boat�s end-of-life, truly the end?� to debate key environment challenges

Wednesday, 11 November 2015

In less than a month, Paris will become THE place to discuss important environmental issues concerning most of us at the occasion of the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP21, taking place in December in the French capital. With the camera lenses being directed at the “city of lights”, it is also a perfect opportunity to give more visibility to the environmental issues in the boating sector at the Nautic – Paris International boat show.

On Tuesday, 8 December 2015 European Boating Industry, the French Federation of Nautical Industries (FIN) and Reed Expositions France are jointly organising a conference under the title “Boat’s end-of-life, truly the end?” gathering industry experts and the European Commission as speakers. The event will be followed by the “Environment Day” on 9 December at the Nautic.

The conference will look at how the boat’s end-of-life issue is being dealt with around the world (e.g. Canada, USA, Japan and Europe) and will highlight the lessons learned from the French pioneering experience in this field. It will go further in examining the existing solutions and the future challenges related to waste reuse and recycling. The European Commission will present its approach and actions related to waste and circular economy. It will also participate in an exchange with the speakers and the audience about the indicators and cornerstones of how to stimulate a boat disposal and recycling market in Europe.

The event in Paris will be a good chance to sum up all the recent developments in the field of boat recycling and dismantling, with the EU project Boat DIGEST having finished earlier this year, the conference “Future of Yacht Recycling” being held next week at METS and the newest boat dismantling scheme being just launched in Sweden.

“Boat’s end-of-life, truly the end?” is free of charge and open to anyone interested in the subject. The conference will be held in French, with simultaneous translation into English. No prior registration is required, however you need a valid entrance ticket to access the Nautic boat show.

The event’s programme and the speakers’ list are available in English and French:
