Our Recent Reports

Fishing for a Recovery

Planet Tracker has launched a new framework and interactive tool for fisheries to evaluate their suitability for a ‘Blue Recovery Bond’. Fishing for a Recovery proposes a new financial product that could improve the health of fish populations that billions depend on worldwide. The paper analyses 295 fisheries; finding 65 strong candidates for a blue recovery bond.

Nearly half of plastic companies have no link between executive pay and sustainability goals, despite nearly all being publicly committed to sustainability policies. Over half (54%) of companies do not set Science-based targets. With the top 25 independent shareholders holding a combined USD 1.1 trillion and the plastic industry facing one of the longest risk registers of any sector, investors should extend pay performance policies beyond purely financial metrics and include sustainability-linked elements.
