The Bay takes right steps at Footprint awards
Article Date: 2013-04-19
The Bay in Stonehaven has come up trumps once again, this time as a nominee for the Sustainable Sourcing Award at the 2013 Footprint Awards.
As the industry’s only awards scheme encouraging sustainability and responsible business throughout the supply chain, the nomination is yet another giant step in The Bay^s commitment to responsible fishing.
Nick Fenwicke-Clennell, Footprint Media Group CEO commented: “The sheer number and quality of entries demonstrates that the way our industry perceives sustainability has changed enormously in recent years. The very notion of sustainability having once been a ‘buzz word’ has become outdated.
“This shortlist is testament to the fact that it is now a critical issue very much embedded in business plans and acknowledged as an area that can really add value to operations. However, this is by no means a fait accompli. The goalposts continue to move and there is certainly no room for complacency for those organisations who want to continue to make their mark in this area.”
