    World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a Seafood Markets - Supply Chain Analyst Intern.

    Responsibilities

    Overview:

     

    For over 30 years, ocean conservation has been a priority for WWF. Much of our work focuses on reducing the negative impacts of fisheries and aquaculture on oceans and other ecosystems. The goal is an economically viable global seafood production system that is environmentally sustainable, socially responsible, and resilient in the face of change.

     

    To drive this work, WWF collaborates with companies around the world that lead long-term commitments to source sustainable seafood and to engage their supply chains to develop transformational improvements in the seafood industry. These commitments build upon WWF’s global work with fishing and farming industries, businesses, governments and local communities to safeguard marine wildlife, the natural environment, and the livelihoods of people who depend on the oceans for their wellbeing.

     

    During our 20 years of engagement with companies we have developed a successful approach to helping our partners fulfill their sustainability commitments. WWF has the most public, comprehensive seafood partnerships – working with over 100 leading global companies on their commitment to seafood sustainability. This global scale and collective engagement drives efficiencies of scale and impact along seafood supply chains.

     

    WWF seeks a Seafood Markets - Supply Chain Analyst Intern.  This internship will provide the opportunity to learn about the seafood industry supply chain and the work that is going on globally by the food industry to increase sustainable seafood production.  The intern will work directly with Senior Program Officers to collect and analyze supply chain data and support development of strategies for engaging fisheries and farms to increase the procurement of sustainable, responsible seafood.
