Thai Union Group has been listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for the seventh year running, as its sustainability strategy SeaChange continues to stimulate change across the global seafood industry.

Thai Union achieved a 99th percentile ranking for total sustainability and a 100th percentile score in ten areas, namely materiality, risk and crisis management, codes of business conduct, supply chain management, innovation management, health and nutrition, environmental reporting, water related risks, social reporting and human rights.

“Sustainability has long been at the heart of the Thai Union business and I have been incredibly proud of what we have achieved throughout our journey,” said Thiraphong Chansiri, president and chief executive of Thai Union. “We have been able to drive incredible change across the global seafood industry and we have no intention of slowing down and will continue to set the standard for our peers to follow.”

Thai Union has been listed on the Food Products Industry Index of the DJSI for the past seven years and was ranked number one in the world in 2018 and 2019. Thai Union was also recently named on the FTSE4Good Emerging Index for the fifth year running and has been ranked number one on the inaugural Seafood Stewardship Index.

Through its SeaChange programme, Thai Union is also delivering against the UN Sustainable Development Goals, specifically zero hunger, decent work and economic growth, and life below water.
