Creating a sustainable base for fish and shrimp feed
Skretting is always seeking to expand our knowledge of the nutritional composition of aquafeed ingredients as well as the impacts of the supply chains that create them. This helps us to deliver products that enable farmers to produce more from less, and by doing so addresses three United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Below, you can learn more about what we do to support these goals.
Our nutritional solutions include a wide variety of ingredients sourced from all over the world. We can only develop sustainable nutritional solutions if we are part of a responsible supply chain.
Our Supplier Code of Conduct enables us to engage with our suppliers on material issues relating to their operations and to set minimum criteria relating to
environmental, social and legal aspects.
Based on spend, over 90% of our suppliers have signed off on their agreement to comply with the Code, and it is mandatory for all new suppliers to sign. Supplier sustainability audits are performed, with an extra focus on countries and ingredients that have been identified as ‘high risk’.
Cooperation between value chain partners (business, government, science and NGOs) is a prerequisite to successfully addressing the sustainability challenges of our industry. Nutreco participates in various sustainable partnerships such as the Round Table on Responsible Soy, the ProTerra Network, the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, the Aquaculture Stewardship Council and the International Fishmeal and Fish Oil Responsible Supply Standard.
