Greenhouse Gas Accounting Efforts Undermined by Disparate Tools and Frameworks
Variability in product-level GHG accounting standards and methodologies can prevent companies from understanding both their true emissions and their progress in reducing them. Greater harmonization in product-level accounting could accelerate progress and enable better cross-organizational comparison. Collaboration among companies to collect, request information from suppliers on, and report product-based GHG emissions in a standardized way can lessen the burden of individual quality control and harmonization.
Why these companies are choosing collaboration over competition, for a climate resilient future
This case study highlights the potential of GSI’s pre-competitive change model, showcasing how our members choose collaboration over competition to foster a more climate-resilient future. Over the past decade, GSI has utilized this model to make measurable progress in the sustainability of salmon farming. In this article, learn how our model can be used as a universal blueprint to motivate environmental improvements at the speed and scale the world needs.
Our path to 100% - Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification
All GSI members are committed to achieving 100% ASC certification of their farms. At the time of the GSI launch, no salmon farm in the world was ASC-certified.
GSI’s work on fish health and welfare
GSI member farms are in the oceans; we share the same waters and therefore the same risks when it comes to biosecurity and fish welfare. By working together and sharing expertise, we believe we can have a greater impact on ensuring optimal fish health.
Collaboration for sustainable progress in salmon farming
The GSI is a collective of companies from the global farmed salmon industry that are united by the mission to drive improvements in environmental and social performance of the industry - and improve consumer access to responsibly farmed salmon.
The GSI’s commitment to sustainable fish feed
Feed ingredients play an important role in the efficiency of salmon farming. It provides the salmon with all the protein and essential nutrients required for optimal health and growth.
The Business Case for Pre-Competitive Collaboration
The number of companies throughout various industries making commitments to sustainability has risen exponentially over the last few years. However, many companies are struggling to meet their commitments, often reinventing the wheel or pursuing parallel, but often unequal, strategies. There is a growing realization that individual supply chain actors lack the power to fix large-scale environmental degradation such as deforestation, depletion of wild fish stocks, and plastic pollution on their own, yet these problems pose real risks to entire industries and also to individual company reputations, as well as long-term profitability.
