Workshop: Money Matters: How Do We Pay for Social and Environmental Sustainability?
There are multiple factors that drive the sustainable seafood movement forward, and money is an important one. How are purchasing, investments and funding decisions made in support of healthy stocks and oceans, and the livelihoods of fishers and workers? How do supply chain actors and stakeholders decide to pay for social and environmental sustainability and what exactly does that process look like? What are the levers, incentives, risks and next steps?
This facilitated workshop will attempt to address these questions among others and unpack assumptions regarding funding sustainable seafood. It will highlight success stories and challenges from industry, philanthropy and suppliers, by which we can build toward an honest conversation about roadblocks in funding sustainable seafood and how we can make improvements in the future.
