GSSI STATEMENT ON CORONAVIRUS
GSSI statement on coronavirus. “As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to expand and to impact lives, GSSI is taking responsible precautions. GSSI Secretariat now works from home in line with the Dutch government guidance and uses digital tools to maintain programme continuity and support our partners. Health and safety are our priorities.
2020 marks another important year ahead for GSSI, we are committed to continue tackling today’s pressing seafood sustainability challenges under these exceptional circumstances, and to work with our global partnership to deliver more sustainable seafood in the future.
Our programmes are on the right path: following the Seafood Expo cancellation, Seafood MAP will be launched online, with an expert-led panel; the global partnership keeps growing, as we recently welcomed our new funding partner, TASA.
Find out about GSSI’s programmes and don’t hesitate to contact our team for more information.”
