SEAFOOD2030 VIRTUAL SUSTAINABILITY FORUM | Designing a Global Sustainable Seafood System
In December of 2021, SeafoodSource and Seafood2030 hosted a free Virtual Event that included a series of dialogues assessing our collective impact on IUU, Fair Labor, National Management & International Governance, and Sustainable Financing.
Over the last 20 years, a robust landscape of marketplace tools, sustainability initiatives and programs have developed globally to support industry adoption of sustainable practices and product. These efforts have been successful addressing the worst environmental impacts, labor practices and supply chain pain points in seafood. Now these disparate efforts are aligning into a coherent sustainable seafood system -- increasing the collective impact of all stakeholders and the opportunity to bring about real change in the industry.
This event evaluated how well the collective efforts of the sustainable seafood system to address IUU, Fair Labor, National Management & International Governance and Sustainable Finance and identify ways to improve how we work.
Day 1 of the program provided an evaluation of sustainable seafood efforts from industry leaders and issue experts and Day 2 was an opportunity for participants to provide input and identify strategies to support a more effective support system for a sustainable seafood industry.
