Victory for consumers in WWF´s battle to defend MSC ecolabel

Following an objection from WWF and an independent adjudication, the Independent Adjudicator has made his final ruling on the case, reiterating his initial finding that the scoring by the certifier could not be justified and requiring that the earlier recommendation for certification be withdrawn. This landmark decision highlights that current management of tuna in the Indian Ocean does not meet the MSC’s sustainability requirements.

The MSC, beset for a number of years by poor certifier performance and the misapplication of its sustainability standard will benefit from the decision which brings a new clarity to the standard.
