Planning for Sustainability

In 2013, we reviewed and clarified our sustainability strategy. The goal of this exercise was to:

  • Ensure that we understood the global and industry trends impacting our company now and into the future
  • Clearly define what sustainability success means to our operations, our employees and our products
  • Create a sustainability action plan that was meaningful to Chicken of the Sea, but also aligned with our parent company and its sustainability efforts
  • Set ambitious, but attainable, sustainability goals in each of our key focus areas
At the end of 2015, we brought that work to our parent company as Thai Union began the process of clarifying its own sustainability strategy, called Sea Change. Through a series of meetings with the global sustainability team, we discussed setting ambitious corporate-wide environmental and social goals for 2020, informed in part by the work that we have undertaken since 2012 and by the plans we have in the coming years. 

Beginning in 2016, we will start mapping our sustainability initiatives against Sea Change's four pillars: safe and legal labor, marine conservation, responsible sourcing, and caring for our communities. We'll also include a more formal exploration of how our sustainability activities align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
