Mr. Geir Molvik hands over the baton as CEO of Cermaq Group as he wishes Cermaq well and seeks to prioritize his time differently going forward. New CEO from March 2022 will be Steven Rafferty, current MD of Cermaq Chile.
In the run up to COP 26, Cermaq joins UNs Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in engaging the private sector in climate proofing aquatic food systems. Blue Food is climate action and is needed both for human and planetary health.

Cermaq and Folla Alger enter into an agreement on integrated salmon and kelp farming in collaboration with leading research environments in Norway. The companies will utilize nutrients from the salmon cages for farming kelp but will also develop kelp into a new feed raw material for salmon.
Cermaq will cut 35 percent (in absolute figures) of its total greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. More electric boats and facilities, renewable energy, climate-friendly transport and feed will be important measures, making Cermaq one of five aquaculture companies that use science-based climate targeting (SBT).
Transparency has always been important to Cermaq, and that is why we were pioneers in sustainability reporting in our industry, and for more than 10 years have had our GRI report reviewed by external auditors. The GRI-report covers 40 indicators, of which 13 are customized to address aquaculture specific areas.
Cermaq, being an active partner in the Global Salmon Initiative (GSI), proudly shares the GSI press release on the launch of the sustainability report. The report includes data 14 sustainability metrics across 40% of global farmed salmon industry.
Sustainability is more important than ever, and Cermaq is now strengthening its organization to raise the bar and drive this work with even greater impact. Lars Galtung will take on the responsibility when communication and sustainability functions are combined in one department.
