Indicate and briefly describe any actions that have been carried out to implement this Resolution: 
Influencia pol�tica/promoci�n de pol�ticasCCB is in favour of an expansion of offshore wind energy for the implementation of the energy transition, but this entails many risks for nature and places an additional burden on the marine environment through loss of habitat. We have worked on advocating that the expansion of offshore wind energy must be compatible with nature. This means that, when planning and building wind turbines in the Baltic Sea, the objectives of the EU Birds and Habitats Directive and the MSFD must be taken into account.On-going
Indique cuáles han sido los resultados/logros obtenidos en el marco de las actividades realizadas: 
In 2022, CCB took part in consultations, meetings and actively engagedin BSAC for preparation and chairing of workshops to introduce topics and discussions on compatibility concerns of fisheries with other maritime activities such as offshore wind energy expansion. Moreover, CCB drafted and submitted to the EC a CCB position paper for the consultation of the introduction of the RePowerEU plan and the proposal of amendment of the Renewable Energy Directive, especially for offshore wind farms, focusing on a positive narrative and relating offshore wind farm expansion to strict protection. Finally, a joint document with WWF BEP on “Cumulative impacts of offshore wind park (OWP) projects in the Baltic Sea” was presented at the HELCOM Working Group on the State of the Environment and Nature Conservation to highlight the need of building knowledge regarding cumulative effects and MPA impacts as well as to enhance cooperation with the Espoo Convention to address transboundary cumulative impacts of planned OWP in the Baltic Sea and to align the development ambitions with the BSAP MPA goals and priorities.

Acción FuturaDescripción
Influencia pol�tica/promoci�n de pol�ticasCCB has together with WWF BEP started the process of drafting a guideline document for Member States, industry actors and NGOs to identify ORE go-to areas in the Baltic Sea Region under the proposed amended Directive on Renewable Energy and the RePowerEU plan,including CCB stand-points on marine protection and environmental impacts from offshore wind energy,use of best available technology and alternatives for cooperation.
