    Sustainable fishing in partnership with the WWF

    Together with WWF, we are working everyday to make sure that fishing activities are conducted in an ethical, legal, transparent, and fully traceable manner.

    In renewing our collaboration with WWF® in 2021, we decided to broaden the scope of our work and to focus on the concept of “Ocean Stewardship”. We increased our sourcing from more sustainable fishing practices: 86.5% of our branded tuna now comes from responsibly managed fisheries.

    We played an important advocacy role to improve stocks’ management within the international organizations regulating fishing activities in high seas. We started an exciting project related to the blue forest conservation project in the Gulf of Guayaquil, Ecuador, which will protect more than 7,000 hectares of mangroves.



    Oxfam and Bolton, together for Human Rights

    In 2020 we started a four-years partnership with OXFAM to strengthen our social sustainability roadmap and conduct a more thorough investigation into the impact of our operations on key human rights. Our aim is to address, mitigate and prevent any adverse effect on the lives of workers and communities along the tuna supply chain, which is one of the Group’s most strategic and complex supply chains.

    Thanks to this collaboration we have been strongly advancing the Group’s human rights agenda. In 2022, we focused our work on analyzing and revising corporate policies related to human rights. This work led to the release of a new Bolton Human Rights Policy, which was prepared with the support of OXFAM, and to setting new relevant goals and actions that will have a tangible impact on the lives of people in our supply chains and communities where we operate.
