The European Sustainable Boating Roundtable, organised by EBI in collaboration with Confindustria Nautica and the Regione Liguria, will focus on promoting sustainability and growing the European boating and yachting industry. Discussions at the launch event will centre around the European Green Deal and how the recreational boating industry can transition towards sustainable solutions. It will also focus on how this can increase global competitiveness for the European sector and increase exports.


The Roundtable kicks off a new collaboration between EBI and the Genoa International Boat Show that will be extended in the coming years, providing an exciting new space for discussion on sustainability to kick off the second half of the year for the industry each year.
