Satlink Recognized for Promotion of Sustainable Fisheries Management

Satlink, a leading company in developing technological solutions for sustainable maritime and fishing activities, has been selected as a finalist in the 2024 World Sustainability Awards in the 'Communications' category. Satlink is competing for the award alongside companies from a wide variety of international sectors, including fellow Spanish company Naturgy, DBS Bank, Eastman, and Grupo Ageas Portugal.

The awards will be presented in Amsterdam this coming October and will be organized by sustainability leaders, the global organization of sustainability executives, and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) criteria implementers to collaborate and accelerate various initiatives in these areas.

The jury has recognized Satlink's communications efforts in promoting responsible and sustainable fisheries management, highlighting the industry’s good practices, and raising awareness of the importance of ocean knowledge and marine conservation.

According to the jury, Satlink's efforts have achieved a triple objective: raising awareness of the need to ensure the long-term sustainability of fisheries, fostering dialogue across the maritime sector by involving all stakeholders and highlighting the good practices of fishing fleets that are not only committed to responsible fishing but also care for the oceans, their resources and the people working in them.

The jury also noted that Satlink's efforts help combat misinformation and fake news about the fishing industry, and that the company's holistic approach to communications is allowing them to reach all stakeholders across the board, encouraging tangible changes and promoting the adoption of technology as a key tool to ensure the sustainability of fisheries and marine resources.

According to Kathryn Gavira, Head of Sustainability at Satlink, “We develop technology for better management of oceans and fisheries, and we have the privilege of working with all stakeholders. It is gratifying to see how communication allows us to amplify the message and reach all audiences through different channels, highlighting the industry’s best practices, forging alliances, and fostering dialogue in the maritime-fishing sector by involving all parties.”

Improving the understanding of the oceans’ environment for a more efficient management of marine resources, in collaboration with the maritime-fishing sector and the scientific community, is at the heart of Satlink's activities. In this regard, it is worth noting that the company created the Science and Sustainability Department in 2017, aiming to increase knowledge on the oceans and thus help address challenges such as illegal fishing, marine pollution, and climate change.
