Sustainability and Justice in the High Seas

Greenpeace Southeast Asia urged Philippine-based tuna canneries to step up improvements in their systems and business practices to address issues on labor rights, sustainability, and traceable produce in the industry. The call came at the release of the latest Greenpeace canned tuna ranking report, which shows that only one out of six tuna canneries surveyed in the country had “good” performance in the aforementioned aspects. The report, titled Sustainability and Justice in the High Seas, also evaluated nine tuna brands in Thailand and five canneries in Indonesia based on a criteria of tuna traceability, sustainability of sourcing, legality and labor concerns, social responsibility, sourcing policy, transparency and customer information, and driving change in the industry.
