SeaWeb Seafood Summit
June 10 - June 14
The World’s Premier Conference on Seafood Sustainability
On June 13 at 9:00, GSSI will be hosting a panel discussion titled, ‘GSSI: BENCHMARKING AND BEYOND’
For the last five years, GSSI has been at the forefront of creating global alignment in seafood certification. With seven certification schemes now GSSI-recognised, and 15+ companies including GSSI in global sourcing policies, GSSI is building on its vision of more sustainable seafood for everyone. Coming up next, GSSI’s Global Benchmark Tool version 2.0 is underway, and a new social benchmark is being developed with the Consumer Goods Forum’s Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative. As one of the largest industry partnerships (80+ partner organisations and growing rapidly) spanning the entire seafood value chain, alongside the UN’s FAO, GSSI is driving forward its benchmarking success, and working to address wider global seafood sustainability challenges through its platform.
In this panel discussion, GSSI and partners will discuss how GSSI’s growing Global Partnership can extend the scope of its work to provide more sustainable seafood for everyone. Discussions will be supplemented by the results of GSSI and IDH’s 2017 strategic study conducted by external consultancy NewForsight, as well as the results of GSSI’s 2018 Strategic Partner Survey in which partners were asked to provide their views on which global seafood sustainability challenges GSSI is well positioned to address.
