Bumble Bee’s sustainability journey started many years ago.
For over a decade, we have been on the forefront of protecting tuna stocks around the globe, helping found the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation to bring scientists, the tuna industry, and environmental champions around the world together to preserve the health of our oceans. We’ve already seen a significant impact, but now is the time to accelerate our actions and do even more.
Our vision is to redefine sustainability and social impact for all seafood companies, ensuring the health of our oceans and all who rely on them. It is our mission to lead the world as champions for sustainable fishing and advocates for fishers, setting tomorrow’s standards through the actions we take today.
& Ocean Plastic
As the sole corporate partner of the third phase of the Global Ghost Gear Initiative’s (GGGI) Indonesia Ghost Gear Prevention, Retrieval, and Net Recycling Programme, we’re creating strategies that address the major challenges of ghost gear in a key fishing nation through reduction, reuse, and recycling.See Program
