The story of developing a seafood sustainable sourcing policy

March 12, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


You are invited to join us for another talk in our Food Systems Sustainability Speaker Series at MIT. We will also hold an informal post-talk discussion from 1-2 pm, location TBD. This event is free and open to the public, RSVPs requested

George Parmenter from Delhaize and Jen Levin from Gulf of Maine Research Institute will speak together about the evolution of developing a seafood sustainability program in a grocery environment – George from the perspective of a private sector sustainability manager for a multi-national corporation and Jen from her perspective as manager of the sustainable seafood program for a non-profit research institute.
This is a story of developing policy through engagement with suppliers, internal stakeholders and decision-makers. The talk will highlight some of the challenges of this type of collaborative initiative, and will describe the steps taken to create a seafood sourcing policy for Delhaize.
You will learn some of the latest news on what NGOs active in sustainable sourcing are doing, how they interact and collaborate with each other and other sectors, and how grocery retailers are approaching similar goals.
