Increased media coverage and significant events such as fires in the Amazon and Australia in 2019 have contributed to a raised awareness of climate change and put the issue firmly on Thai Union's agenda as it pushes forward with the next phase of its sustainability drive, Global Director of Corporate Affairs and Sustainability Darian McBain told IntraFish.

"There is an expectation that the corporate world will also show leadership and be part of the solution," said McBain following the launch last month of the seafood giant's annual sustainability report and the prominence of climate change among stakeholders' priorties.
