Cermaq’s Activities to Meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals
In a new report, mainstream sustainability indicators are linked to key activities to meet the overarching global challenges of climate action, ocean health, biodiversity, reducing the footprint of food production and creating shared value.
The report presents actual examples of how Cermaq and the global aquaculture industry can help in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Increased food production in the sea is a key point.
In parallel, transparency and traceability throughout the value chain must be ensured to positively affect consumer preference towards sustainably raised salmon.
“The impact from food production is a balance of positive and negative elements. It is not only emissions; it is also workplaces and value creation,” says CEO Geir Molvik.
"Aquaculture is strongly weighted towards the positive side and we aim to improve this even further".
"Global challenges require cooperation on global solutions. In the end, it is all about sustainability and how we together can support the internationally shared goals to cap rising global temperature at 1.5°C, and feed a growing global population with nutritious, healthy and sustainable food", adds Molvik.

All food production creates a footprint, often measured as the environmental impact – such as CO2 equivalent emissions, arable land used, freshwater use or waste product produced.
Cermaq is one of the world's leading companies in farming of salmon and trout, with operations in Norway, Chile and Canada. Cermaq is a fully owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation with head office in Oslo, Norway.
