UNCTAD Blue BioTrade Principles & Criteria

Certificate Description

Blue BioTrade aims to promote trade and investment in marine biological resources in line with social, economic and environmental sustainability criteria, known as the BioTrade Principles and Criteria.

Integrating BioTrade principles and criteria into the marine environment can promote the sustainable use of scarce and vital oceanic living resources (at the genetic, species and ecosystem levels) and can lessen the negative impacts of human and economic activity over marine ecosystems.

Blue BioTrade is a spinoff of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Oceans Economy and Fisheries Programme and the BioTrade Initiative.
