High business ethics and standards are key values to SalMar. We wish to run an honest, decent and compliant business, that takes pride in showing what we do. Therefore, we are certified according to the strictest requirements and guidelines for sustainable aquaculture, including through ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council).
ASC has the world’s highest sustainability standard for responsible salmon production. Customer and third-party standards such as this involve requirements and monitoring of our business. This comes in addition to the monitoring performed by the authorities.
The SalMar Standard
SalMar has devised our own standard for best practice. As one of the world’s largest salmon producers, fish welfare is a vital part of this work. We make sure that our salmon are healthy and thriving by using internal audits and monitoring, in addition to external certifications. As such, we also safeguard the environment and build the foundations for a long-term farming business.
For more details on our certifications, refer to SalMar’s Sustainability Report for 2021.
Our greenhouse gas targets are in line with the UN’s 1.5-degree target
SalMar’s greenhouse gas targets have been verified by the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi). SalMar has set ambitious climate goals in line with the UN’s 1.5-degree goal. In our climate goals, we are committed to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 42% from 2020 to 2030, both in Scope 1 and 2, which include our own operations, and in Scope 3, which includes the value chain around us.
SalMar is proud to point out that we take climate actions seriously and work actively towards achieving our goals.
