Sustainable Seafood Coalition (SSC) Labelling working group meeting minutes - 3rd July 2012

Labelling working group meeting (afternoon): Summary of agreed
points:
1. The SSC will align their definition of ‘sustainable’ with that of the Bruntland Commission.
“The SSC defines sustainable fisheries and aquaculture as meeting the needs of the
present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs
(from the World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987).
2. All present agreed that the alternative route to ‘sustainable’, should be removed i.e.
confidence that there is consistency with the SSC principles for sustainability, This will be
discussed by all members at the members meeting 18th July for agreement.
3. As with the sourcing code, it was agreed that ethical and social issues should not be
considered. Currently they are included under wild-capture in terms of worker conditions.
However, it was agreed that this should be removed and the scope should clearly state
that the code relates to environmental claims, which may be re-considered as the
membership expands.
