SDGs are the “2030 Sustainable Development Agenda” published by the United Nations in 2015, and 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were discussed.

In addition to the previous article on what individuals can start from, it is also very important to recognize product certification! ! In this way, you can choose these certified products when you buy ingredients or commodities, which not only protects yourself, but also allows these manufacturers to recycle and do more meaningful things! !

***Marine Stewardship Council, MSC***

By preventing overfishing, fish will be able to capture marine resources and protect marine ecosystems in the future. Therefore, in order to protect the rich ocean, the marine ecological label “MSC certification” is established.

 

***Aquaculture Stewardship Council“ASC”***

With the increasing demand for aquaculture, poor labor environment, water pollution and ecosystem chaos are happening. In this case, in order not to have a bad impact on the environment, the environmental protection label “ASC certification” for aquaculture is affixed to the farming products considering the local society.

***Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil“RSPO”***

Palm oil used in desserts, creams, chocolates, shampoos, sauces, etc. Because palm oil is a very convenient oil, demand has increased dramatically in the past 30 years.

As a result, the forests of Indonesia and Malaysia, which are producing countries, have been heavily deforested. If the forest is cut down, the earth will be warmed, and even the habitat of wild animals will be taken away. Therefore, in order to promote the sustainable production and utilization of palm oil, the “RSPO certification” was formulated.

Seeing the above three certifications, you can pay attention to see which ingredients have these certifications when you go to Japanese supermarkets! !
