MSC strategic plan

The MSC has a vital role to play in safeguarding seafood resources through our certification and ecolabelling program for sustainable seafood. As a relatively small organisation, our Integrated Strategic Plans provide essential direction to help us make the greatest improvements to marine environments.

The MSC’s current strategic plan (2012-2017) is focused on maintaining and increasing the value proposition of the MSC program for existing certified fisheries and commercial partners. These are predominantly in Europe, North America and Oceania. The plan also outlines steps to expand and make the MSC accessible and desirable to fisheries and markets outside its current core regions.  

The new plan is built around 4 key strategic priorities, which will drive specific work plans to 2017:

  • Assure the MSC program's credibility and effectiveness
  • Cultivate and expand markets for sustainable seafood
  • Grow the supply of sustainable seafood
  • Scale and support a global enterprise
