Our Global Partnership

The GSSI Global Partnership brings together more than ninety stakeholders in a pre-competitive effort to tackle the complex, global sustainability challenges facing the seafood industry.  The private sector–from across the seafood value chain–, NGOs, governments and international organizations–including the FAO–collaborate and exchange knowledge to create joint solutions to these challenges.

Collaborations

In 2017, GSSI together with 66 companies, 6 national governments and 21 civil society organizations, signed the Tuna 2020 Traceability Declaration.

In 2018, GSSI set up a landmark collaboration with the Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative (SSCI) of The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) to jointly address these concerns in the seafood sector.

In February 2021, Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship (SeaBOS), the Global Tuna Alliance (GTA), the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF), the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) and GSSI have released a joint statement calling for action to combat the scourge of illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing: “Statement on Traceability and Port State Measures”.
