ANBI - Coastal & Marine Union

Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) / Coastal & Sea Association has been recognized by the Tax Authorities as a Public Benefit Organization. Donations to Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) / Coast & Sea Association are deductible from the taxable income according to the normal conditions of the Tax Authorities.


We focus on the sustainable use and development of the coastal strip and the sea. Responsible tourism, sustainable fishing and the use of sustainable energy sources are part of this. We call attention to safety and the risks of climate change and think along with other stakeholders about solutions. We are also working to strengthen the landscape, the natural connections for migratory animals and the cultural heritage, along the coast and at sea. To achieve all this, we set up consultation structures to realize the sustainable protection and development of the coast and sea. But we also set up projects and cooperate with them to research. We keep a close eye on developments within the European Union. We do not work alone, because we can only achieve our goals by working together with our partners: our members and the stakeholders involved in the coast and sea.

Remuneration policy for staff and management

The Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) is very aware that it works with project subsidies, sponsors and membership fees. The remuneration policy is geared to this and is socially very justifiable. We generally follow the Collective Labor Agreement for Welfare and Social Services. However, an inflation correction or a salary increase is not self-evident. Employees of Coast and Sea will not be paid overtime, 13th month, bonuses, company cars or expensive Christmas packages. The remuneration level of the management team is also very moderate and does not exceed scale 12 (welfare agreement).
