Ocean Vision 2030: Are eco-certifications ready for the challenges?

As the drive towards sustainability accelerates, the expectations for the fishing industry and its transparency are increasing. Consumers buy products with eco certifications to support the green transition, but are these helping to push the agenda forward or potentially undermining progress by simply certifying ‘business as usual’? What are the current best practices in the fishing industry and how do we expect these to change by 2030?

The Blue Deal Debates series is coming back! Join Rud Pedersen Public Affairs Brussels on September 28 from 13:00 – 14:30 CET while we explore the trajectory of global best practices in fisheries looking forward to 2030 and the role of eco-labels.
