"Precision farming, the way we use big data, artificial intelligence and blockchain transparency are all part of our daily conversations and will have a huge impact on the way we move forward."
Therese Log Bergjord, CEO Skretting
The new food landscape
We are in a new food world. The next generation of consumers want to understand what they're eating - from its origin to the values of the producer - and rightly so. At the same time, we have millions of people who cannot make that choice. What does this new landscape mean for us, a global leader in aquaculture feed and services, looking to supply the industry with sustainable nutritional solutions produced in a safe and ethical way? This is high on our minds as we continue to prepare ourselves for the future. We may be tired of hearing this, but we are undergoing a digital transformation and at Skretting we are embracing and responding to this change. Precision farming, the way we use big data, artificial intellegence and blockchain transparency are all part of our daily conversations and will have a huge impact on the way we move forward.
Skretting is the global leader in providing innovative and sustainable nutritional solutions for the aquaculture industry.
The Skretting brand is supported by four fundamental pillars supported by an underlying foundation of innovation and R&D.
The Nuterra programme sets out Skretting and Nutreco’s sustainability strategy and provides the tools required to implement this throughout our company. The Nuterra programme is made up of distinct components.
Our Nuterra Roadmap sets clear ambitions regarding people, planet and profit. It’s an aspirational vision designed to align our actions and initiatives over a period of several years, as we work to fulfil our mission of ‘Feeding the Future’. These objectives are aligned with the long-term goals of our strategy as well as the SDGs.
Our Nuterra Standard is an internal tool that clearly outlines the actions needed to realise the Nuterra Roadmap and enables us to measure and score progress over time. Our operations undertake this assessment biannually to ensure that we hold ourselves accountable in our sustainability aspirations and targets.
Skretting and our parent company Nutreco have a long tradition of transparent reporting. Indeed it is something we take great pride in. The sustainability reports provide specific case studies that demonstrate the sustainability attributes of Skretting’s highly innovative nutritional solutions and some of the regions and sectors around the world where we are making a real difference.
In 2017, Skretting continued to help advance aquaculture industry in a sustainable way and fulfil our mission of ‘Feeding the Future’. Our sustainability programme Nuterra sets clear sustainability ambitions and aspirations, and these objectives are aligned with the long-term goals of our strategy and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Sustainability Report provides an overview of our achievements in 2017 in regard to each of the Nuterra pillars Nutritional Solutions, Ingredients, Operations and Commitment and their impacts on the society as well as the specific SDGs addressed.
Throughout 2016, Skretting made good progress against its sustainability objectives. This work was supported through the launch of Nuterra, our new group-wide sustainability programme. Aligned with and contributing to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Nuterra sets out a more focused sustainability strategy and provides the tools necessary to implement it throughout our entire organisation. The new programme also makes it easier for us to package sustainability in a practical way that provides the most value for our customers.
The 2016 Sustainability Report provide specific case studies that demonstrate the sustainability attributes of Skretting’s highly innovative nutritional solutions and some of the regions and sectors around the world where we are making a real difference.
As well as highlighting the specific SDGs that are being addressed by each of the Nuterra programme’s four pillars: Nutritional Solutions, Ingredients, Operations and Commitment, the reports are explicitly linked to our Mission of ‘Feeding the Future’, thereby providing insight into how we are contributing to meeting the rising food needs of a fast growing global population in a sustainable manner.
Our sustainability reports are drafted according to the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards.
