JCCU supported the campaign "Sustainable Seafood Week 2017" to promote the use of sustainable marine resources.
The campaign was held from 17th to 28th October 2017 for the purpose of spreading the idea that selecting sustainable marine resources makes it possible to take over healthy ocean (“Sustainable Seafood”) It was hosted by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Japan, the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Japan Office, the Executive Committee of the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) Japan.
JCCU considers “consideration for the environment” as well as the “realization of a sustainable society” as a major keyword in its business operation. As a result JCCU aggressively develops and spreads products usinf MSC certified materials. MSC certification is given to fishery products with consideration to fish catches, fishing methods, fishing season not to destroy ecosystem, not to deplete marine resources. “CO·OP boneless mackerel” series uses MSC certified mackerel.
JCCU will continue to actively address the concern for the environment.
