New tool includes features such as comparison tools, charts, and an interactive map.

Certification organization for the aquaculture sector the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) has announced the launch of its new Impact Dashboard, an interactive interface designed to showcase the organization’s impact to industry stakeholders.

“The redesigned dashboard uses the latest data visualization techniques to make it easier for users to view and collect information on ASC’s impact. Visualizing data and allowing users to filter to geographies and years of interest and export chart images can help businesses, producers, and retailers make informed business decisions,” said Jill Swasey, ASC director of impacts, monitoring, and evaluation, in a press release.

The dashboard allows stakeholders to compare ASC certified production volumes, farm sites, and labeled products year-on-year and view trends. With a simple click on the map, users can explore the number of ASC certified farms in a country, the species being farmed, and its growth compared to previous months or years.

Through the launch of the new interactive tool, the ASC aims to demonstrate its commitment to transparent operations, making it easier for industry stakeholders to compare the organization’s global impact.

The redesign of the dashboard was carried out in partnership with The Information Lab, which undertook the project pro bono.

“Our focus is to support NGOs that often lack the time and resources to scale up and develop their analytics capabilities. As a pro bono program sponsored by The Information Lab, a tech consultancy company with high in-house tech skills, we utilize our consultants’ downtime between clients to practice and contribute to social progress. We reviewed ASC’s mission and felt that the organization aligns with the type of NGOs we wish to support,” said Benedetta Tagliaferri, culture and inclusion lead at The Information Lab.
