Assurance of an environmentally balanced

approach to navigation infrastructure

development and maintenance

The environmental vision is one of

sustainable development, protection,

and enhancement of global biodiversity


PIANC - EnviCom

  • Responsible for dealing with both broad and very specific sustainability and environment-related issues of interest to PIANC.
  • Networking
  • Represents PIANC in international organizations, e.q., London Convention, OSPAR, WODA, IAPH, the U.N., and the EU.
  • Partners with InCom, MarCom, ReCom, or CoCom.
  • Networks with other navigation related interests and has communications with non-traditional groups such as IMO, UN, CEDA, WODA, WEDA, EDA, IADC, IAPH, AAPA, RAMSAR, WWF, UNEP, SEDNET, PARALIA, INE, CCNR
