Our sustainability program: It's not just what we aspire to do, it's what we do

Why we need to be sustainable

As an aquaculture feed company with a global presence, Skretting is ideally positioned to contribute towards the development of more sustainable food production. By 2050, the world population will have grown to almost 10 billion people. At the same time, increased urbanisation and income growth are changing dietary preferences and increasing the demand for animal proteins. Through our mission of feeding the future, we are committed to producing feeds that provide food security in a sustainable way.  At Skretting, we have a strong focus on reducing our environmental footprint and increasing our positive social impact. Our objectives are aligned with the long-term goals of our strategy as well as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Given the scale of the sustainability challenges facing the world, it is impossible to achieve progress in isolation. This can only be achieved if partnerships are formed between all segments of society including business, government, NGOs and communities. Collaboration is one of our company values at Skretting and Nutreco and this can been seen through our long term involvment in external partnerships and multistakeholder platforms. This includes our biannual Agri and AquaVision conferences as well as the Pincoy Project in Chile, the Seafood Business Ocean Stewardship, and our community development projects in Nigeria, Fjordfrende in Norway, and Aqua in Bocca in Italy, to name a few.

Skretting and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

 In 2015 the United Nations introduced a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. Our sustainability program is closely aligned with the SDGs. Our mission of Feeding the Future is directly addressing SDG 2: Zero hunger.
