This is the third version of Greenpeace Southeast Asia’s Tuna Cannery Ranking.

From Sea to Can: 2018 Southeast Asia Canned Tuna Ranking Report

  (HONG KONG, 12/8/2018)

Greenpeace is running an international campaign to steer the global tuna industry towards more environmentally and socially responsible sourcing. 

Tuna stocks globally continue to experience intense pressure from destructive fishing practices and overfishing. Slavery at sea and human rights abuses are rampant in distant water fishing fleets found in every part of the world. It is vital that we protect our oceans, and the tuna fishing and processing sector is an important part of the success of this campaign.

Catching tuna is a lucrative industry,  generating USD 42 billion per year, and provides thousands of jobs in the catching, processing, and trading sector worldwide.

Greenpeace has released the third version of Greenpeace Southeast Asia’s Tuna Cannery Ranking. The ranking evaluates nine canned tuna brands in Thailand, seven tuna canneries in Indonesia, and seven tuna canneries in the Philippines. It aims to provide information and guidance, not only for tuna companies, but to consumers as well. As the rest of Southeast Asia becomes aware of issues about traceability, sustainability and slavery at sea, this report provides information beyond what is seen on the label.

The Philippines and Indonesia are among the top five tuna producers in the world, while Thailand is the biggest tuna processor, all selling tuna to major brands in key markets.

In a span of three years, considerable progress has been made by these tuna processing companies in working towards a more traceable, sustainable, and worker-friendly canned tuna industry. Nonetheless, there is still more work to do across the board to fully meet these goals.

After three years of continuous campaigning and collaborative dialogue in the region,  there are now have five companies with an overall Green rating, as opposed to virtually zero when this regional ranking first started. 

Greenpeace Southeast Asia contacted the top nine tuna brands from Thailand, the top seven  tuna canneries from Indonesia, and the top seven canneries from the Philippines. Greenpeace  requested that the companies participate in this year’s survey process, and offered to help each company to accurately complete the questionnaires.

About Greenpeace

Greenpeace  is a non-governmental environmental organization with offices in over 39 countries and with an international coordinating body in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.  Greenpeace states its goal is to "ensure the ability of the Earth to nurture life in all its diversity" and focuses its campaigning on worldwide issues such as climate change, deforestation, overfishing, commercial whaling, genetic engineering, and anti-nuclear issues. It uses direct action, lobbying, research, and ecotage to achieve its goals. The global organization does not accept funding from governments, corporations, or political parties, relying on 3 million individual supporters and foundation grants. Greenpeace has a general consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council and is a founding member of the INGO Accountability Charter; an international non-governmental organization that intends to foster accountability and transparency of non-governmental organizations

Greenpeace is known for its direct actions and has been described as the most visible environmental organization in the world. Greenpeace has raised environmental issues to public knowledge, and influenced both the private and the public sector. Greenpeace has also been a source of controversy; its motives and methods (some of the latter being illegal) have received criticism, including an open letter from more than 100 Nobel laureates urging Greenpeace to end its campaign against genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The organization's direct actions have sparked legal actions against Greenpeace activists, such as fines and suspended sentences for destroying a test plot of genetically modified wheat and damaging the Nazca Lines, a UN World Heritage site in Peru.
