As a company built on producing and selling high quality seafood products to markets around the world, our sustainability objectives can be summarized in three overarching aims:
To ensure the
seas are sustainable
now and for future
To ensure that our
workers are safe,
legally employed and
To ensure vessels
we buy from are
legal and operate
SeaChange® is our global sustainability strategy. We think of SeaChange® as a journey that covers every aspect of the seafood business: from how we look after the oceans to how we manage our waste; from the responsibility we take for our workers to building brighter futures for the communities around our key sites.
When it comes to sustainability, the key is the ability to fully trace our seafood – from catch to consumption; with full traceability in place, we will be able to identify, investigate and improve key issues such as labor and sourcing.
While this work is designed to have a positive impact on the seafood industry, the milestones we achieve under our programs will also deliver against United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have focused on three of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, contributing to broader societal change in areas where we can have direct influence. However, our work contributes to all 17 goals in a number of ways.
Our milestones against each of our four programs will demonstrate our progress by 2020, which will contribute to the SDGs’ 2030 targets.
