Our expertise includes
Fisheries sustainability assessments
JPEC conducts fishery sustainability assessments using third-party criteria, including Marine Stewardship Council and Seafood Watch. We also undertake confidential pre-assessments for clients considering Marine Stewardship Council certification.
Fishery performance and chain-of-custody audits
JPEC evaluates fishery performance and seafood supply chain integrity. We are experienced in assessing performance against the requirements of Regional Fisheries Management Organisations and qualified to conduct Marine Stewardship Council chain of custody audits.
Environmental effects of primary industries
JPEC’s expertise includes assessing and reducing the environmental effects of fisheries, forestry, farming and mining. We believe in environmentally sound natural resource management – working for industry and the environment, together.
Need strong policy to make a change for good? JPEC can help. We are experienced in all stages of the policy process, from information collection and collation, through options development and analysis, stakeholder engagement, consultation, and regulation.
JPEC is globally connected. We build on our own international experience by working with networks of global experts. We also help connect clients and our international colleagues, to ensure productive linkages between New Zealand and the world.
Improving environmental practice often means changing human behaviour. JPEC creates and delivers environmental education resources and programmes for those in the primary industries. We specialise in working with people who may be reluctant participants in environmental education.
