The Certification and Ratings Collaboration includes five member programs with a range of tools and resources that support different elements of businesses’ social responsibility efforts. In particular, many of these tools and resources can serve as an input to the human rights due diligence process:
Provide verified information to seafood buyers about human rights abuses and other social issues that are occuring in specific fisheries or farms, what caused the issues, and the actions needed or being undertaken to address the issues.
Examples: ASC’s audit reports published for every certified farm and feed mill; MSC-certified fisheries’ self-reporting on efforts to mitigate the risk of forced or child labor
Note: The list above does not include SFP’s FIP progress ratings and MBA’s Seafood Watch ratings standard and methodology, because they are currently designed to focus exclusively on environmental issues.
This table provides a high-level mapping of each member’s tools to social responsibility issues from the Social Responsibility Assessment (SRA) Tool. For more details on each member’s social responsibility tools and approaches, please read the following two-page profiles:
