Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) studies are crucial in achieving sustainable seafood supply chains. The seafood industry dramatically impacts the environment and the well-being of communities involved in fishing and aquaculture. It is, therefore, vital to consider ESG factors in decision-making to ensure the industry's long-term viability and positive impact on the environment, society, and economy.
Here are some of the key ESG considerations in the seafood industry:
Environmental Sustainability: This encompasses the impact of fishing and aquaculture on the marine ecosystem, such as overfishing, habitat destruction, and harmful fishing practices. It also covers the environmental impact of seafood production, transportation, and consumption.
Social Responsibility: This encompasses the treatment of workers in the seafood industry, particularly regarding fair labour practices, working conditions, and health and safety. It also covers the impact of seafood production on local communities, such as displacement and loss of livelihoods.
Good Governance: This encompasses transparency and accountability in the seafood supply chain, from fishing or aquaculture operations to the retail or food service sector. It also contains responsible and sustainable management of fishery resources to ensure their long-term viability.
By taking these ESG factors into account, seafood companies can ensure that their operations are sustainable and positively impact the environment and society. Furthermore, companies adopting sustainable seafood practices will likely have better reputations and improved relationships with customers, suppliers, and stakeholders.
