The partnership will enable seafood operations to be included in the scope of the amfori BSCI monitoring system.

amfori and Global Seafood Alliance GSA to Partner on Human Rights Due Diligence in Seafood

  (UNITED STATES, 5/9/2022)

The Global Seafood Alliance (GSA) has announced that it has signed a letter of intent with amfori, a leading global business association for open and sustainable trade, outlining the terms and objectives of a partnership.

GSA is an international nongovernmental organization dedicated to advancing responsible seafood practices through education, advocacy and third-party assurances. GSA’s two certification schemes, Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) and Best Seafood Practices (BSP) provide assurances to the marketplace that wild and farmed seafood has been harvested and processed in an ethical manner with respect for, among other things, the wellbeing and security of all employees across the supply chain.

GSA and amfori will collaborate to design resources and share learnings that will contribute to create competency in performance across their mutual programs and standards.

This partnership comes at a critical time as the European Union and governments are introducing regulations for mandatory Human Rights and Environmental Due Diligence. Both organizations recognize that it’s becoming crucial that companies are accompanied in their due diligence journey with the right set of tools, available in a seamless way and avoiding duplication of efforts.

This partnership will enable seafood operations to be included in the scope of the amfori BSCI monitoring system, providing assurance on sector-specific aspects (such as ethical risks in seafood processing facilities, farm and vessel management and employee/crew welfare) by using the BAP and BSP certification schemes.

Furthermore, GSA and amfori will collaborate to design resources and share learnings that will contribute to creating competency in performance across their mutual programs and standards.

“In all of the work that we do, particularly as it pertains to standards development and certification, collaboration is critical,” said GSA CEO Brian Perkins. “Partnering with a leading global business association like amfori and surrounding ourselves with like-minded individuals and organizations only strengthens our ability to ensure social accountability across the value chain for both farmed and wild-caught seafood.”

Linda Kromjong, amfori President said: “We are delighted to partner with GSA, an organisation that has acquired over the years a deep expertise in the development of social compliance and monitoring tools in global seafood supply chains. By sharing competences and expertise with key partners, we able to support the highest level of responsible practices across amfori members’ supply chains, including towards the people who work aboard vessels, on farms and in seafood processing plants.”
