Presented by

FAIRR | Planet Tracker | UNEP FI | WBA | WWF

About this talk

A partner coalition made of the FAIRR Initiative, WWF US, UNEP FI, Planet Tracker and the World Benchmarking Alliance started a Collaborative Investor Engagement to encourage major seafood companies to develop and implement full-chain, digital and interoperable traceability systems. Such traceability systems are used as a means of identifying and addressing key environmental and social risks - such as illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, overfishing, habitat conversion and human rights issues - and unlocking sustainable opportunities. Agenda: • Introductory remarks and overview of the Seafood Traceability Engagement by Jo Raven, Director of Thematic Research & Corporate Innovation at the FAIRR Initiative • Expert panel moderated by Helen Packer, lead of the Seafood Stewardship Index at the World Benchmarking Alliance. Speakers include: o Mark Richardson, Director of Market Data and Systems Transparency for the WWF-US Ocean Markets & Finance team o François Mosnier, Head of the Oceans Programme at Planet Tracker o Greg Brown, Executive Director at the Global Dialogue on Seafood Traceability (GDST) o Cynthia Asaf, Chief Operating Officer at Pacifical • Audience Q&A • Closing remarks

United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector created in the wake of the 1992 Earth Summit with a mission to promote sustainable finance. More than 240 financial institutions, including banks, insurers, and investors, work with UN Environment to understand today’s environmental, social and governance challenges, why they matter to finance, and how to actively participate in addressing them. UNEP FI’s work also includes a strong focus on policy – by facilitating country-level dialogues between finance practitioners, supervisors, regulators and policy-makers, and, at the international level, by promoting financial sector involvement in processes such as the global climate negotiations.
