Seas At Risk's new report exposes the role played by the EU, its Member States, the UK and Norway in this final mining frontier and provides a comprehensive analysis of their existing policies on deep-sea mining. It makes the case for the EU and Member States to prohibit deep-sea mining in European waters and to push for a global moratorium, putting forward 10 steps for Europe to support deep-sea protection - from setting binding targets for the reduction of the EU’s material footprint and banning the import of goods and raw materials containing deep-sea minerals, to reforming the International Seabed Authority for greater accountability and shaping strong EU and national commitments to protect the deep sea.
