Safer Seas traditionally considers the stakes of maritime safety together with the related economic obstacles or opportunities but these days, environmental issues and the possible answers to the climate and energy challenges are redefining the scope of maritime security and safety policies.

From potential new maritime routes opened by the ice melting, to new regulations and technological innovations for greener, low-carbon ships ; from the increase in offshore activities related to the exploitation of fossil or biomarine resources, to the rise of marine energies; there is no shortage of examples demonstrating that maritime shipping and the rules regulating it are no longer the alpha and omega of maritime safety and security.

Consequently, "Blue Growth" was the theme chosen for this 2015 edition of Safer Seas to highlight the stakes of maritime safety and security and the world of possibilities that the seas have to offer.
