The recently approved Economic Sustainability Law 2/2011, of the 4th of March, defines "economic sustainability" as a "framework for growth that reconciles economic, social and environmental development in a productive and competitive economy, that encourages quality employment, equal opportunities and social cohesion and guarantees respect for the environment and the rational use of natural resources in such a way as to satisfy the needs of current generations without compromising the possibilities of future generations to provide for their own necessities". On the basis of this definition and the articles of the law, the role of CEI·MAR acquires special relevance because, due its specializations and activities, it will have a strong effect on sustainable economic development in territories it influences.
As well as its coherence and commitment to the Economic Stability Law CEI·MAR focuses its activities on the trends and challenges of the European context, serving as a benchmark in research, teaching and transfer in the context of European Union directives. Proof of this is its strategic alignment with important directives, guidelines and charters aimed at building a clear strategy of sustainable development: the Aalborg Charter (1994) aimed at achieving and ensuring sustainability from each of the regions of Europe, the Resolution of the Committee of the Regions of the EU on Development Policy in Support of Integrated Growth and Sustainable (2011) as well as other documents that are of relevance for CEI·MAR and its areas of specialization: the Maritime Policy Green, the Water Framework Directive (Directive 2000/60/CE), the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (2008/56/CE) and the Reform of Fisheries Policy, among others.
