Sustainable Development Goals

GSI Commitment to Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity, established by the United Nations (UN) as part of their 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development. 17 goals were developed with the aim of creating a sustainable life for future generations, with specific targets set to be achieved.

SDG 14 is a call to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources as part of global sustainable development. The oceans can provide a healthy food source for millions of people around the world, yet this will only be possible if we reduce overfishing, conserve ocean biodiversity, and farm fish responsibly.

In terms of our commitment to being responsible ocean stewards, here is how the GSI supports SDG 14 to make this possible:

  • Utilize GSI’s model of pre-competitive collaboration to promote accelerated improvements in responsible aquaculture
  • Transparently report on environmental and social performance via GSI’s annual industry-wide Sustainability Report
  • Drive industry innovation through continued partnerships and sharing of expertise
  • Share knowledge and insights from salmon farming to developing aquaculture sectors to accelerate improvements and support aquaculture as a sustainable food source, and positive contributor to local communities and economies
