Research webinar 12: Standards and the blue economy

Research webinar with Jason Potts from the International Institute for Sustainable Development on sustainability standards and the blue economy. The State of Sustainability Initiatives (SSI) project is a multi-institutional effort to understand and report on market-based approaches to sustainable commodity production and trade. This webinar, held on 6th April 2017, presents a pioneering effort to assess the state of the ‘blue economy’ – specifically focusing on major marine and freshwater sustainability-oriented certification initiatives. It will also present how the analytical framework devised and used for a number of land-based commodities has been adapted to ocean wild fish and aquaculture.
