Harmful Installations and Maritime Transport
Maritime transport of hazardous substances and waste such as radioactive materials, oil and fertilizers also pose a threat to the Baltic Sea environment.
To substantially reduce the discharges of harmful substances to the Baltic Sea from sources both on land (municipal sewage, atmospheric deposition) and from point sources (Ships and harbours)
How are CCB working with this issue?
CCB aims to raise awareness on and avoid potential threats to the Baltic Sea environment and to valuable Baltic Sea coastal areas from harmful installations and maritime transport. Examples of harmful installations are oil terminals, nuclear power plants and port facilities.
CCB work is dedicated to promote environmentally safe technologies and responsible shipping practices for the handling and transport of harmful substances.
What can countries do together?
Give very high priority to the implementation of the HELCOM Baltic Strategy to improve the system of port reception facilities for waste and harmful substances generated on ships. Make concerted efforts to eliminate sub-standard ships from entering and operating in the Baltic Sea. Put a stop to offshore oil and gas exploitation in the Baltic Sea.
What can each country do?
Take measures to reduce the discharges of harmful substances in municipal waste and storm water and as well as from installations which generate pollution. Make detailed Environmental Impact Assessments of all
