Sustainable seafood leader FishWise will host a free webinar for retailers and others along the supply chain on social responsibility.
“Social Responsibility: Launching a Roadmap for the Seafood Industry” is set for 2 p.m. ET Dec. 6.
“Human rights and labor abuses can be challenging to prevent given the global scale and complexity of food supply chains,” according to FishWise. “Despite these challenges, efforts to prevent abuses and government legislation aimed at improving human and labor rights across the globe are increasing. In particular, we’ve heard from seafood industry representatives about a need for guidance and that companies are approaching improvements from a variety of starting points.”
With support from the Walmart Foundation, the webinar will provide an online roadmap and set of tools that a wide range of stakeholders can use to build, assess, and improve socially responsible practices in seafood supply chains. The roadmap refers to a series of steps, and each step will offer a compilation of tools, guidance, and resources to help companies implement the roadmap components and track progress.
