Seafood Sustainability Plan Supports UN Goals

SeaChange® 2030 marks a significant expansion of our far-reaching sustainability strategy, first created in 2016. The plan is built on 11 interconnected goals that will drive global impact for our people and our planet. 

A plan this bold cannot happen in isolation. Our parent company, Thai Union, has formed numerous global partnerships in forming and implementing the SeaChange® plan. The plan aligns with the UN Global Compact, which urges companies to implement practices that support a collaborative, global plan to advance the well-being of our world. Thai Union has done precisely that. SeaChange® goals actively support the delivery of 10 of the United Nations’ (UN’s) Sustainable Development Goals. 

UN Sustainable Development Goals

The UN goals flow from the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and is built on the themes of people, planet, peace, prosperity, and partnership. By working together from a shared blueprint, the global partnership aims to achieve a shared vision: “The lives of all will be profoundly improved and our world will be transformed for the better.”

This massive, global effort reflects “an urgent call for action by all countries,” explains the UN, and all 17 Sustainable Development Goals represent an integrated approach for addressing “a wide range of economic, social and environmental objectives.” The goals are:

  • Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
  • Goal 2. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
  • Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
  • Goal 4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
  • Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
  • Goal 6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
  • Goal 7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
  • Goal 8. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
  • Goal 9. Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation

  • Goal 17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development

Sustainability plan alignment

Here’s a closer look at the connections between the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the design of SeaChange® initiatives:

In its Sustainable Development Report 2023, the UN highlights both threats and progress, urging, “We must make the next seven years count.” We share the belief of UN partners that coming together and acting in unison to better our world is the only way forward. “Commitments this ambitious require the power and collaboration of communities, governments, and organizations that can help make long overdue structural changes a reality,” said Adam Brennan, Chief Sustainability Officer of Thai Union when the SeaChange® 2030 plan was released.
