The WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Award 2022 is now accepting nominations.
The goal of the world’s most prestigious sustainability award is to recognize and promote excellent efforts from all corners of the globe.
As we attempt to find the correct balance between ecological, environmental, and social concerns, the objective is to spark innovation and create enduring synergies.
Since 2000, the award has been given in Gothenburg.
You may now nominate a person or an organization whose aquaculture project might help to improve efficiency and sustainability, and thereby contribute to one or more of the United Nations’ global objectives.
The nominee/nominees will have effected change that inspires others and shown what steps are required, as well as those that are feasible.
2022 Theme: Sustainable Aquaculture
Today, food production accounts for about 25% of all greenhouse gas emissions and is the leading cause of biological variety loss, deforestation, and endangered fish populations.
The production of red meat, in particular, is a big concern that must be mitigated.
According to the United Nations, global food production would need to grow by 70% by 2050.
Additionally, as people’s wages rise and their eating habits change, there will be a higher need for nutrient-dense foods.
We need to look at the potential – and problems – that blue and green foods might give in order to address the world’s future food supply.
Aquaculture – the cultivation of aquatic animals and plants such as fish, clams, crabs, and algae – is required to fulfill the nutritional needs of the world’s fast-growing population, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
Aquaculture is already thriving, and about three billion people rely on fish for at least 20% of their daily nutritional needs, with several health and environmental advantages.
The FAO’s strategic plan for the years 2022-2031 aims to encourage 35-40 percent growth in worldwide aquaculture by 2030.
However, fish and shellfish farming is not always sustainable, and concerns such as over-fertilization and soil damage must be addressed.
Many aquaculture production techniques are still being developed, which means there are plenty of possibilities to lead the business toward more sustainable production practices.
The jury of the WIN WIN Gothenburg Sustainability Prize predicts possible award winners in 2022 in areas such as innovative seafood products and more sustainable animal feed and agricultural practices.
