Our next CLG meeting will look at the specific marine commitments, the timescale to achieve them and the role of certification.

In November 2021 five leading UK supermarkets pledged to make the UK weekly food shop ‘greener’ by slashing their impact across climate, deforestation and nature by 2030 in the Retailers' Commitment for Nature. This commitment is underpinned by the WWF Basket Blueprint for Action which makes a number of commitments about marine sourcing.

This Common Language Group (CLG) bite-size meeting will look more closely at these marine commitments, the timescale to achieve them, the role of certification and the specific stipulations regarding forage fish.

Seafood Issues Groups

The CLG is one of a number of Seafish-facilitated discussion forums which focus on the integrity of the seafood supply chain. These groups provide a discussion platform for some of the most important issues facing the seafood industry, particularly in relation to the responsible sourcing of seafood. They are an opportunity for all those involved in the seafood supply chain to reach a consensus on common issues
