Finding solutions to global challenges
Today, our rapidly growing world population is facing greater challenges to find sustainable food sources than ever before. Farmed salmon may provide a solution to the increasing demand for protein, and could ensure a healthier diet by providing food that can be produced in an environmentally sustainable way.
Cermaq depends on healthy oceans to produce sustainable salmon, and we are committed to contributing to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals – through sustainable practices in our own operations and through global partnerships to advance ocean stewardship.
As a global producer of a food source with a relatively low carbon footprint, we are a part of the solution in the shift toward more sustainable food production. However, for us, the natural qualities of our product are only the baseline. We are determined to make a difference through research, innovation and be a driver for sustainability in global food production.
This is why we are founding members of Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship initiative and the United Nations Global Compact Action Platform for Sustainable Ocean Business– to advance the agenda for sustainably produced food and raise awareness of the role of seafood in healthy diets worldwide.
