Following the UN's publication of its Sustainable Development Goals, GOED's sustainability report goes some way to providing a response to the growing pressure on companies
The Global Organisation for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) has recently commissioned a comprehensive sustainability report from sustainable food consultancy Tasting the Future.
This "horizon scan" report explores more than 20 pivotal environmental, social and governance trends that may become increasingly important to the EPA and DHA omega-3 industry over the next decade.
The report aims to help omega-3 businesses respond and inform their long-term decision-making and strategic thinking.
In the report, the company wrote: “Following the UN’s sustainability development goals are expected to identify, implement and report on specific actions that lead to the achievement of the aims. This involves tackling multiple issues.”
It can serve as a valuable tool to help identify future opportunities within international markets or prepare for and mitigate risks within evolving legislative, consumer, industry and technological landscapes. In addition, the report offers a set of actionable recommendations and next steps for all stakeholders in the EPA+DHA omega-3 space.
GOED represents the worldwide EPA and DHA omega-3 industry, with a mission to increase consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3s around the world.
The membership is built on a quality standard unparalleled in the market and members must comply with quality and ethics guidelines that ensure members produce quality products that consumers can trust.
