As there are concerns over the depletion of the world's marine resources, the preservation and sustainable use of marine resources is a pressing issue for the Nissui Group, which is engaged in businesses that utilize the bounty of the sea. We will promote the establishment of businesses that are sustainable in the medium- to long-term, through the handling of marine products whose resource status has been checked, the development of aquaculture technology with low environmental impact, and the acquisition of marine eco-label certification. To meet market demand into the future, we will endeavor to utilize marine products in a sustainable manner.
The Marine Resource Sustainability Subcommittee, whose objective is to identify the resource status of marine products handled by the Nissui Group and promote the sustainable use of resources, holds a meeting four times a year. The Subcommittee is engaged in initiatives to improve the sustainability of marine resources while collaborating with various organizations, including the Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship (SeaBOS) and other NGOs, as well as research institutes such as universities.
2030: The sustainability of the marine products procured by the Nissui Group will have been confirmed.
We conducted the first Survey of Procured Marine Resources Sustainability targeted at marine products procured in 2016. Currently, we are conducting the second Survey targeted at marine products procured in 2019.
