Nueva Pescanova reasserts its commitment to Sustainability in Conxemar

  • Within the framework of its participation at the fair, it celebrated the signing of its Fishing and Aquaculture Responsibility, and Development Aid and Cooperation policies
  • It presented its Sustainability program Pescanova Blue, which includes the set of initiatives for responsible action by Grupo Nueva Pescanova in matters of supply, operations, labor relations, and development of the communities where it operates

Vigo, October 1, 2019.- Grupo Nueva Pescanova has reasserted its Sustainability policy by signing commitments with new policies which will govern its actions in matters of Fishing, Aquaculture, and Development Aid and Cooperation. The event took place within the framework of the company’s participation in Conxemar, the international fair on frozen seafood products which is held this week in Vigo.

These Fishing and Aquaculture policies adopt the principles of the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries by committing to conservation and sustainable use of natural resources, as well as certification and regulatory compliance. Among other things, these documents include the key measures of the Group to fight against illegal fishing or contamination of the marine environment, and what its premises are in matters of sustainable aquaculture or animal well-being. In addition, they establish the bases in connection to labor responsibility, biodiversity and circular economics in fishery byproducts.

Through the signing of this Development Aid and Cooperation policy, the Group’s commitment to the communities in which it operates, including their development through job creation, is also established, through the creation of education, support, care of the natural environment, and humanitarian aid.

In line with its commitment to sustainable development, this year the stand of Grupo Nueva Pescanova at the fair is presided over by a noteworthy large label which presents the sustainability program Pescanova Blue. This program is the company’s operational response to the four strategic pillars that make up its Corporate Social Responsibility plan: Planet, People, Product and Communities. In this way, Pescanova Blue includes the set of initiatives designed to conduct and document the Group’s responsible action on matters of supply and responsible operations, labor relations, contribution to the community, and compliance with ethical and legal requirements.

The company is also committed to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which it incorporates in all its activities: fishing, aquaculture, processing, and marketing of seafood products in all the countries where it is present and currently it has a total of 226 sustainable development projects.
