The environmental impact of pearl farming is determined by how efficiently resources such as land, water, and farming infrastructure are used, and the consequences of their use – positive and negative – on the ecosystems and communities in which farmers work.

PearlPoints allows pearl farmers to explore a range of environmental impacts associated with their activities. It also helps farmers understand if they are effectively considering ecological, social, and corporate governance (ESG) in their business.
