Press release: UK and Vanuatu unite to tackle marine litter

first_imgScientists from the UK’s Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) have been busy in the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu since November 2018, monitoring the environment to collect data on marine litter and working with partners to tackle plastic pollution in the ocean.This forms part of the Commonwealth Litter Programme (CLiP), a £6million programme which sees the UK help countries develop national litter action plans.Cefas’ CLiP Programme Lead Thomas Maes said of the work so far: Protecting our marine environment is a global challenge which requires global action. This conference is a fantastic opportunity for our world-leading scientists to share their expertise in the international fight to tackle marine litter. Through the UK and Vanuatu-led Commonwealth Clean Oceans Alliance we will use the collective power of the Commonwealth to protect our marine environment for future generations. Globally it is estimated that eight million tonnes of plastic make their way into oceans every year. Cefas scientists have already recovered 15,000 items of litter from beaches monitored across Vanuatu and Solomon Islands.Recognising the international scale of the problem, the government has pledged up to £66.4million through the CCOA to boost global research and prevent plastic waste entering the oceans.Back home, the UK is a world leader in tackling the scourge of plastic – introducing one of the world’s toughest bans on microbeads, taking 15million bags out of circulation through the 5p plastic bag charge and consulting on a ban on plastic straws, cotton buds and stirrers.Defra has also today launched a suite of consultations to overhaul the waste system, cut plastic pollution and move towards a more circular economy – building on the landmark Resources and Waste Strategy in December.The South Pacific regional conference is taking place in Port Vila, Vanuatu, from 18-19 February. It has been a pleasure to work with Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands to tackle the emerging issue of marine litter. Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much! We only have one earth and our oceans are vital to our existence. We should all work together on keeping our oceans clean, healthy and sustainable for future generations to enjoy. To stop marine litter, we thus need a unified vision and a plan of action while developing ways of working together at national, regional and global scales UK scientists have joined forces with their Pacific counterparts today to help turn the tide on marine litter.Environment Minister Thérèse Coffey is in Vanuatu for the South Pacific Region Commonwealth Litter Programme conference, which brings together governments, policy makers, educators and scientists to share expertise in the fight against plastic pollution.The UK and Vanuatu co-chair the Commonwealth Clean Oceans Alliance – an initiative to unite countries across the Commonwealth in protecting the marine environment.Since its launch in April last year, 24 countries have joined this alliance and pledged action on plastics – whether that’s a ban on microbeads, cutting down single-use plastic bags, or other steps to eliminate avoidable plastic waste.Environment Minister Thérèse Coffey said:last_img read more

EC allows Denmark to open up bingo & horseracing markets as Danske Spil loses market monopoly

first_img Altenar: Supporting expansion plans in Denmark and Portugal August 20, 2020 Related Articles Danske Spil calls for esports makeover with Pinnacle Solution August 25, 2020 Share The European Commission (EC) has permitted the Danish government to open up its online bingo and horseracing wagering markets, ending the monopoly position of state-owned gambling operator Danske Spil.The Danish government, in accordance with European Union business laws, wants to liberalise its bingo and horseracing markets. The government had asked the EC for a review of its draft laws in preparation for opening bingo and horseracing to licensed European betting/gaming enterprises.In 2012, Denmark had passed its new gambling regulatory framework, allowing for licensed casino, poker and sports betting operators to compete within its new liberalised markets.Placing a 20% on gross gaming revenues for online gambling services, Denmark has been acknowledged as a ‘workable’ market by international operators. The Danish government now moves to fully open all of its gambling sectors adding online bingo and horseracing to its licensing portfolio.Updating stakeholders, the Danish government stated that online bingo would be better served by regulated enterprises, which could tap into a market demand twice the size of that offered by Danske Spil.With regards to horseracing, the government detailed that it wanted to reverse the decline in attendance and turnover of the sport. It details that following a review of market and stakeholder conditions, maintaining the sport of horseracing was deemed no longer a viable option.Morten Ronde, CEO of trade body the Danish Online Gaming Association, issued the following comment to iGamingBusiness: “We are happy that the monopoly on online bingo and betting on horse races is finally broken. This is something we have been arguing for since 2012. We feel that the new rules will bring further innovation and growth to the industry.”As the Danish government lessens the market influence of Danske Spil, debate has turned as to whether the country still needs a state-owned gambling operator. Members of the cabinet whether to break-up and sell Danske Spil assets to interested parties wanting to enter the lucrative Danish gambling market.In October 2016, Danske Spil appointed new CEO Susanne Mørch Koch, with a view of forming a new strategy for its services and charitable operations.
