T75 Global Forum 2019
A few years ago, SFP began holding annual regional forums that brought various industry stakeholders together to learn more about the challenges and successes of sustainable seafood production. For 2019, we will be reinventing this forum model, to coincide with our new Target 75 initiative. Instead of holding separate regional forums next year, we’ll have a single, combined event on February 6 and 7 in the US in Miami, FL, focusing on our Target 75 initiative.
Called the T75 Global Forum 2019, the themed event will take on a whole new format, with innovative and interactive sessions. Companies from around the globe will get the opportunity to highlight their efforts and how they are contributing to Target 75. The forum will also include presentations on progress and remaining challenges, as well as workshops on FIPs and SRs. Together, we will celebrate achievements and develop continued strategies for reaching the ambitious T75 goals by the end of 2020.
“The Target 75 initiative is all about industry-driven change, and how industrial stakeholders can help the world produce seafood more sustainably,” said Kathryn Novak, Director of Buyer Engagement for SFP. “Since that’s been the focus of all of our forums up until now, too, we thought it made perfect sense to bring the two together.”
Title: T75 Global Fisheries Forum 2019
When: February 6-7, 2019
Where: Miami, Florida, United States
Venue: Pullman Miami Airport Hotel
Planning is still underway, but the agenda is shaping up to be one of our best yet. It will include discussion about how Target 75 contributes to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and we’ll hear from some of SFP’s largest multinational partners on how Target 75 is helping them to advance sustainable seafood commitments globally. Panels are being organized on topics such as efforts to scale up improvement projects through national-level FIPs and RFMO engagement, what development agencies are doing to support sustainable fisheries and aquaculture globally, new advances in sustainable aquaculture policy and feed, and new tools and resources for addressing social and labor issues in the seafood supply chain. Of course, we’ll also have an update from SFP CEO Jim Cannon on the status of Target 75, as well as presentations from industry leaders participating in the Supply Chain Roundtables, to get an update on how we’re progressing together toward Target 75.
