FCF and ERM Taiwan Join Forces to Lead ESG Training Program, Empowering Staff for Sustainable Growth in the Industry

(Kaohsiung, Taiwan) March 27, 2024 – FCF Co., Ltd. (FCF) proudly announces the launch of the “Fisheries Sustainable Development – ESG Employee Training” initiative in partnership with ERM Taiwan. Dr. Lihchyi Wen and Associate Partner Apple Wu from ERM Taiwan spearheaded the program, welcoming over 160 participants, including staff members and supply chain partners. The objective was to collectively delve into the impacts of sustainability on industry progress, exploring international frameworks, standards, and regulations. Tailored specifically for the deep-sea fishing sector, the instructors offered invaluable insights to navigate the complexities of the ESG landscape. They also encourage employees to infuse sustainability consciousness into every aspect of their work, fostering a culture of responsibility and environmental stewardship within the industry.

The collaboration between FCF and ERM Taiwan commenced in late 2023, with a two-year roadmap to aid FCF in formulating comprehensive, medium-to-long-term corporate sustainability strategies. This training program stands as a pivotal milestone in materializing FCF’s vision for sustainable development in the fishing industry. Leveraging the expertise of the instructors, the training elevated the ESG proficiency of all employees, igniting a shared zeal for sustainable practices across the organization. The participation of representatives from longstanding fishing industry partners underscored a collective commitment to driving transformative change throughout the supply chain.

Under the guidance of Dr. Wen, the training journey began with an exploration of foundational ESG concepts and origins, followed by an examination of international best practices. This included an overview of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations, alongside guidelines such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the European Union’s Corporate Social Responsibility Reporting Guidelines (CS3D). The instructors shed light on the escalating global concern surrounding climate anomalies, stressing the significance of monitoring and disclosing greenhouse gas emissions in fisheries. They emphasized the imperative for comprehensive carbon footprint assessments and corresponding reduction strategies to meet evolving market demands, presenting both challenges and opportunities for the industry.

Apple also complemented the training with practical case studies, showcasing how organizations like the World Benchmarking Alliance (WBA) evaluate corporate sustainability performance through clear indicators and data. She underscored that ESG transformation is multifaceted, requiring a holistic approach encompassing labor rights, social indicators, supply chain traceability, and ecological impact assessments. These facets form key developmental objectives for FCF as it strives to lead sustainable development in the fisheries sector.

In conclusion, the instructors emphasized that the pursuit of sustainable development is not solely the responsibility of any individual team but demands the collective effort of every employee across all operational facets. By instilling a shared understanding of the company’s vision and empowering individuals to recognize their contributions to sustainable development, this training program acts as a catalyst for FCF’s ongoing journey towards sustainability.
