Opinions from the experts

Concerning the Survey Results of Marine Resources Handled by the Nissui Group

  • You’ve put together some fantastic data…going to all that trouble is rare, even globally.
  • Close to 40% of the marine resources Nissui procured were marine eco-labeled -certified. This is also meaningful for the operator as a way of validating one’s own activities. 

Concerning Sustainable Procurement and Combating IUU Fishing

  • Creating a sustainable procurement mechanism that includes suppliers will also be effective in combating IUU fishing.
  • Maintaining communications with suppliers will be a way for the company to avoid risk.

Opinions from the experts

  • How to evaluate the impact of issues on future operations and share it with employees in the process of determining key issues.
  • The question is what kind of leadership Japanese companies can show in the area of global marine resource management.
  • There are cases of forced labor and child labor being involved in the procurement supply chain without the company’s knowledge. Human rights violations will be a future management risk.

Opinions from the experts

  • A global marine products company requires the perspectives of (1) conservation of the ecosystem, (2) the lives of fishermen and factory workers, (3) humane work styles (e.g. labor conditions) and (4) governance.
  • In terms of food education and food loss, it is crucial to maintain a stance of the company solving issues together with the consumer, e.g. by making proposals that take into account the impact of consumer behavior.
  • A global perspective is essential when dealing with hunger and food pillaging because of its security aspects.
  • Measures are required such as articulating the relationship with SDGs.
