A description of the phase 4 pilots of the Certification Atlas project. The purpose of these pilots was to explore some geospatial analysis options. This is an effort to help develop GIS understanding and capacity, promote its use and think about the end-goal Certification Atlas.
This webinar presents the results of the study after three years of project implementation and shares recommendations for how ASC certification can have a more visible positive impact in the region.
This is one of three infographics that illustrate how the adoption of sustainability standards can contribute towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The examples, based on research of ISEAL members’ impacts, cover:
Through the MarinTrust Improver Programme, the Panama small pelagics fishery has realised benefits from improvement in data collection, research and monitoring, to increased demand for products and access to new markets for responsible fishmeal and fish oil.
This report summarises an assessment of a range of leading metrics that can be used to credibly measure and report on performance over time and across multiple spatial scales. The research focuses on six critical sustainability issues: deforestation, biodiversity, water use, forced labour, poverty, and Greenhouse Gas emissions.
A system report for Marine Stewardship Council in reference to the ISEAL Impacts Code of Good Practice.
Landscape, jurisdictional and other regional approaches are gaining momentum as potential tools for scaling-up the sustainable sourcing of commodities. This briefing aims to assist sustainability standards in assessing these new approaches by providing background information and five ‘entry points’ for exploring potential engagement.
Discussion paper and webinar on landscape and jurisdictional assurance and claims.
ISEAL has developed a good practice guide to help ensure that sustainability claims made by jurisdictions, landscape initiatives, and the companies that source from or support them, are credible. The guidance covers the structural and performance claims a jurisdictional entity may wish to make, along with the supporting action claims of other related stakeholders. This was published in October 2020 following a consultation process and included a webinar to introduce the key concepts and discuss the draft guidance.
