Consideration of Environmental Impacts (2022)

Cedre Information Day, 29th March 2022, Virtual Event

Under the impetus of its Strategy Committee, Cedre is organising an Information Day focusing on the consideration of the environmental impacts of water pollution, both at sea and in inland waters.

The day will be divided into three sessions. The first session will address this question from the point of view of pollution prevention, with three presentations by the French authorities addressing the issues at stake and European and French regulations. The second session will tackle the options available to the response authorities when a spill occurs. These presentations will draw upon feedback from a international level operational authority confronted with an exceptional spill and the strategy adopted by the oil industry to mitigate the consequences of a spill.

The afternoon will be devoted to the assessment of environmental impacts following a spill. This topic will be illustrated with an example of environmental impact measurement in inland waters during the Lubrizol-Normandie Logistique incident. Impacts on the marine environment will be covered by an NGO. Finally, the economic evaluation of ecological damages will be described by two speakers working at national and international levels.

The conferences will be held virtually and will be interspersed with four discussion sessions with the audience
