As a pioneer in the aquaculture industry,
INVE has always been about enabling growth

Sustainable sourcing initiative launched

21 May 2018, at 7:12am

An initiative that aims to enhance the sustainable sourcing of marine ingredients by industries such as the aquafeed production sector has been launched today.

IFFO RS has released its Monitoring, Evaluations and Learning (MEL) baseline report to lay the foundation for subsequent annual reports and allow IFFO RS to present defined annual improvements, which will aid in enhancing the standards credibility.

The report is designed to outline the MEL system (a useful tool to demonstrate IFFO RS’s impacts within the global sourcing and production of marine ingredients and allow appropriate improvements to be implemented), the indicators used to measure aspects of the company, initial baseline data and future targets, in order for subsequent reports to effectively examine changes over time. Baseline data are important to allow changes and improvements to be monitored in a targeted way and identify appropriate areas for improvements.

Dan Lee from the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) says: “GAA congratulates IFFO RS both on its membership of ISEAL and on its Baseline Report. The IFFO RS programme is already having a major impact on the responsible sourcing of marine ingredients and the new monitoring activities will provide a way to measure the scale of these positive impacts. The aquaculture industry needs sustainable marine ingredients so GAA will continue to work closely with IFFO RS towards shared goals. To this end, the two organisations are working on an MOU.”
