Seafood Stewardship Index - Introduction, rationale, and scope

In September 2015, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and corresponding goals (SDGs) and targets were adopted by all 193 UN Member States. Success of the Agenda 2030 requires implementation by governments, but they are unlikely to succeed without broad societal participation and engagement of the private sector. Contrary to the agenda that supported the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the SDG agenda recognizes the pivotal role of the private sector. With increasing globalization, companies are now, more than ever, able to deliver a unique and significant contribution to the achievement of the SDGs.
