Increasing transparency about human rights risks in seafood supply chains is an essential step toward advancing social responsibility in the seafood industry and complying with forthcoming European Union requirements for mandatory human rights due diligence. During this session, a diverse mix of industry and NGO leaders will speak candidly about the challenges and opportunities of increasing transparency about human rights risks, tools available for businesses, and lessons learned from other sectors. The focus of the discussion will be identifying pragmatic solutions to decrease the risk and increase the reward for disclosing human rights risks and efforts to mitigate them.
