The Farsight Award 2011/12
Responsible Research receives the Farsight Award 2011/12 for their outstanding report “The Future of Fish in Asia”
On Thursday the 1st of March 2012, the Farsight Award 2011/12 was presented to Lucy Carmody representing Responsible Research at the Sustainable City Awards ceremony at Mansion House. “The Future of Fish in Asia” report raises the questions of whether we can stop the continuous decline of global fisheries. The report highlights how marine sustainability has been often forgotten when discussing and developing sustainable investment strategies. This research addresses this gap in the context of Responsible Investments and provides an analysis of the sectors and industries that have a direct and indirect impact on marine life. It also explains the “marine crisis” that affects mainly Asia and the existing threats to oceans’ resources and people who depend of them, if current fishing trends are maintained. Professor Gwen Griffith-Dickson, Director of The Lokahi Foundation was a member of the judging panel.
