Salmon producers report progress on sustainability
For the first time, a global food sector has collectively reported on its progress towards sustainability. At The economist World Ocean Summit in Lisbon in June, the Global Salmon Initiative (GSI) announced details of member company and regional progress on industry-wide sustainability goals. The GSI was created with WWF support in 2013 to address the environmental damage caused by salmon farming and achieve 100 per cent Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification by 2020. The GSI Sustainability Dashboard covers the operations of 14 companies collectively producing around half the world’s farmed salmon.
