Risks and opportunities

Though one of the largest seafood companies operating worldwide, SFGC does not disclose any of the basics of an approach to seafood stewardship. As such, interested stakeholders lack any understanding of the risks that the company is exposed to on social and environmental issues. The company should adopt some basic first steps and define it’s approach to sustainability with some objectives covering the fundamentals such as its impact on ecosystems and management of pertinent human and labour rights issues.  There is no evidence that the group has a responsible approach to managing its supply chains or interacting with local communities where it operates.
