Chapter ④

Fjord

At the core of our definition of sustainability is taking take of the fjord that we farm in and the environment around us so that others may also harvest from the nature like we did. Read about the environmental condition of our farming sites, how we work to prevent escapes, and to reduce waste and carbon emissions.

1

Environmental status of our sites

We have a goal of having environmental score «Very good» (1) or «Good» (2) on all our sites within 2022. In addition to this we have decided based on a precautionary principle not to use copper based anti-fouling on our nets as copper has a long degradation time in nature and may potentially have a negative impact on the seabed below our farms.

2

The wild salmon and our impact on it

We have a zero vision of escaped fish from our farms and work systematically with prevention and risk assessment of operations. In addition, we work actively to increase the knowledge about the impact on wild salmon from salmon farming.

3

A traffic light system for sustainable growth

Growth in the aquaculture industry in Norway is currently managed by a traffic light system where sea lice on farmed salmon and its estimated impact on the wild salmon is the only indicator for sustainability. We aim to meet the strict "green light" conditions at all our sites regardless of the area's traffic light status.

4

Waste – resources astray

We want to make sure we use our resources in the best way possible by reducing consumption where possible, reusing what we can and to recycle our waste. In addition, we want to work to fight the challenge with ocean plastics and contribute to keeping the beaches clean.

5

Carbon footprint of salmon

We believe that the food production of the future must be carbon neutral and that our customers will want to buy and eat healthy and tasty food without carbon emissions. Our long-term goal and vision is therefore zero carbon emissions from our food production.
