Eco-responsible policy

Brest Expo includes the event performance tool proposed by UNIMEV: CLEO. We will have the opportunity to draw up the environmental report of Sea Tech Week®.

Coffee breaks will be eco-responsible with 100% local products:

  • The orange juice is replaced by an apple juice produced locally
  • The coffee is Bozec coffee, roasted in Brest
  • The mini-viennoiseries are produced by an artisan baker from Brest
  • The Breizhine biscuit factory in the Port of Brest produces organic biscuits made from buckwheat

The caterers have been chosen for their involvement in their CSR approach, and the promotion of local products and zero plastic.

We are setting up a collective shuttle service between the congress centre and the city centre (close to the hotels and the train station).

Waste:

  • Brest expo is equipped with sorting bins (glass, plastic, cardboard)
  • Less waste is produced on site: the use of single-use plastic is drastically limited
  • Drinking water points are signposted and made available in the spaces
  • Speakers will have a water glass and carafe on stage

badges will be printed on recycled and recyclable cardboard. The printing will be done by a local printer.

Brest, Capital of the Oceans

Ifremer (French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea), Institut Universitaire Européen de la Mer1 (European Institute for Marine Studies), Station biologique de Roscoff (French marine biology and oceanography research and teaching centre), grandes écoles2 (competitive-entrance higher education establishments), French public institutions3… With 1,770 people working in marine research here, the north-west tip of Brittany has elevated itself to the top of the European ranking and is the focus of a third of France’s training and research complement in the marine science sector.

The Brest employment zone is the primary maritime hub for economic activity in Brittany with nearly 30,000 jobs (Defence, higher education and research, fishing and boating…). Structures like the Technopôle Brest-Iroise (a hub for science and technology) and the Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique (a sea innovation cluster), have quickly established themselves as key players in uniting the world of research, education and business in the domain of marine science and technology.

In 2016, in a bid to continue to strengthen their synergies in this domain, this community of economic, academic and institutional protagonists decided to come together within the Campus Mondial de la Mer: a unique and innovative project whose mission is to make Brest and Brittany one of the best venues in the world for the study and valorisation of the oceans and seas, as well as the platform for a strong and sustainable maritime economy.
