How Industry Collaboration Can Create a Sea Change in Ocean Sustainability

June 5, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

How Industry Collaboration Can Create a Sea Change in Ocean Sustainability

This 1-hour webinar takes place on June 5 at 1pm EST (10 AM PST).

With an increasing global demand for fish and other seafoods, and fish stocks dwindling, sustainable food sources needs to be analysed and implemented if it is to meet worldwide consumer demand without. The Global Salmon Initiative (GSI) is an experiment created to address the sustainable seafood issue by uniting global fisheries and seafood farmers to find and share solutions to these sustainability challenges. If the salmon farming industry works together as a whole and shares best practices and business insights, the GSI sees this level of cooperation as an essential vehicle to accelerate the progress required at speed and scale.

During this free session, GSI Convenor Avrim Lazar will join WWF’s Senior Vice President for Markets and Food, Jason Clay, as well as Cargill’s President of Aqua Nutrition, Einar Wathne, for a discussion around the need for change within global food production systems, and will introduce the idea of inclusive, non-competitive collaboration and provide real-life practical examples from salmon farming of how it can help business development.

In this online seminar, participants will learn:

  • The benefits of collaborating as an industry
  • How non-competitive cooperation, and sustainability, can become part of business culture while maintaining competitiveness in the marketplace
  • Why private-public collaborations are important to sustainable development
