Partners

We’re proud to have incredible partners by our side supporting our work on coral reef restoration and sustainable fish sourcing.

Meet The Local Island Communities

Our restoration process has been developed in partnership with the island communities of Badi and Bontosua in the Spermonde Archipelago, Indonesia. Their trust, hospitality and leadership has been instrumental in us helping them to restore their coral reefs. Hope Reef, built off the coast of Bontosua, is the result of a unique collaboration with that community. Their dedication is at the heart of all the success achieved so far.

We are pleased the communities have appointed ambassadors representing key social groups (e.g. youth, women, fishermen) on the islands. We will continue to support the initiatives they identify and lead, to help improve their reef-based livelihoods. We also want to take this opportunity to once again thank these communities for their support in making this happen.

See Bahasa Indonesia translation:

Rangkaian kegiatan restorasi ini merupakan kerja nyata bersama dengan masyarakat di Pulau Badi dan Pulau Bontosua, yang terletak di Kepulauan Spermonde. Kebersamaan, semangat, dan keramahan masyarakat adalah kunci dan bagi semua upaya yang kami lakukan untuk bersama melakukan restorasi terumbu karang.

Kami sangat senang melihat anggota masyarakat bersama-sama memilih duta yang mewakili berbagai kelompok seperti pemuda, perempuan, dan nelayan. Kami akan terus mendukung berbagai inisiatif yang telah mereka pilih dan prakarsai, tentunya dalam usaha meningkatkan taraf hidup melalui berbagai mata pencaharian yang bergantung pada terumbu karang. Sekali lagi, terima kasih kepada seluruh masyarakat, karena tanpa mereka, ini semua tidak dapat terwujud.

WWF

WWF and Mars Petcare have been working for over a decade to review, innovate and scale our approach to more sustainable fish sourcing. We are proud that together we have driven significant improvements in Mars sustainable fish sourcing, positively influenced sustainability in the fishing sector through industry forums, and increased awareness among consumers and policymakers alike that a more sustainable future for fish is not only possible, it is essential.

MSC & ASC

We’ve worked with certification programs and seafood industry experts to make our fish buying practices more sustainable. Driving change at scale is not possible alone, Mars Petcare has therefore been working closely with certification programs and fish experts at Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) to help develop our sourcing strategy, increase transparency in our supply chain and take better action to protect oceans.

Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch

Monterey Bay Aquarium and Mars Petcare work together to help build a more sustainable future for the fishing industry. Mars Petcare relies on the expert Seafood Watch recommendations to guide sourcing strategies. Seafood Watch works with some of the world’s largest seafood suppliers to promote more environmentally sustainable fisheries and aquaculture operations.

International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI)

We are members of ICRI and part of an international community who work together to better understand, protect, and restore coral reefs around the world.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)

We have partnered with IUCN—a network of 17,000+ experts—to promote and further restoration science and identify new ways we can safeguard the natural world and accelerate change.
