Tokyo Sustainable Seafood Summit 2021 Register Opened!

The Tokyo Sustainable Seafood Summit 2021 (TSSS2021) will be held from 11th to 13th October, Monday to Wednesday, 2021. The event is hosted by Seafood Legacy Co., Ltd. (hereinafter “Seafood Legacy ”) and Nikkei ESG and co-sponsored by Walton Family Foundation, David and Lucile Packard Foundation.

With the growing global interest in sustainability, and as symbolized by the idea of the “blue economy,” there is a growing movement towards sustainability in the seafood industry and other ocean-based economies.

In particular, a revision to Japan’s Fisheries Act came into effect in December 2020, with a law enacted to adjust and improve distribution (Domestic Trade of Specific Marine Animals and Plants Act). The policy has made major strides towards improving sustainability.

Along with these changes, the summit will focus on digital transformation (DX) and ESG investment that are key drivers for sustainability in the seafood industry.

We will welcome professionals from both Japan and foreign countries and share their knowledge, and also set occasions for all the participants to communicate with each other to accelerate their efforts for seafood sustainability.
