The British Marine National Agenda

Our goal for 2025 and beyond

Launched in 2020, The British Marine National Agenda outlines a roadmap for a thriving marine industry as we steer towards 2025 and beyond. Developed through discussions with members who identified five critical focus areas, the agenda was carefully crafted by British Marine's executive team and agreed by elected member representatives. It presents a clear declaration of British Marine’s determination to play a significant and measurable role in supporting the growth and success of its members and the industry.
