We are pleased to present our new Sustainability Report - focusing on our commitment to value creation through sustainable business practices.
We believe access to affordable, delicious and healthy seafood is of paramount importance in a resource scarce world where the population is growing and where 2 billion people lack the nutrients they need to live a healthy life.
- Klaus B. Nielsen, CEO
The report demonstrates how we act and perform on sustainability within our four focus areas:
Key Actions and Achievements in 2016:
We increased the amount of fish used for human consumption by almost 5% during 2016. We now use nearly 75% of the fish for human consumption (the goal is to reach 90% by 2022).
We took lead on a project seeking to develop innovative trawling gear in order to protect the seabed (read more here)
We initiated a successful project aiming to protect the marine environment in new ice-free ocean zones, in the Northeast Atlantic (read more here)
