Skretting Sustainability Report 2021

Read report (pdf)

From our CEO

Welcome to our Sustainability Report 2021! Here, we’re not sharing stories about how great we are; we're also not saying that everything we do is perfect or that we have solved all the challenges we face as a company and as an industry; because that's simply not the case. Instead, we're providing details of how we’re working to address our dilemmas; we are highlighting the opportunities that we intend to embrace; and we're showing where there's clear room for improvement.  

Most importantly, we’re emphasising the power of collaboration, and emphasising that if we want to drive transformational changes for our industry we must work closer with our customers, suppliers, NGOs, certification bodies, and all the other relevant stakeholders that we interact with in the value chain.

As such, our sustainability story cannot be written from only our own perspective. That’s why for this report we invited a group of key stakeholders to share their views on a wide number of important topics, including transparency, marine ingredients and soy sourcing, certification, and environmental, social and governance risks.

We need to keep learning and do more – better and faster.
Therese Log Bergjord, CEO Skretting

We’re proud of what we have achieved so far, but rapidly changing developments in the industry and in the wider world, with COVID-19 still impacting us all alongside logistics issues, rising inflation and the war in Ukraine, as well as increasing demands from consumers with regards to knowing more about the food that they’re eating, we’re fully aware that we need to keep learning and do more – better and faster.

Our company-wide purpose of ‘Feeding the Future’ is something that we take very seriously. Together with our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders, our feed contributes to the production of more than 21 million seafood meals per day globally. This is a huge responsibility and we are determined to be accountable for everything that we do.

The content and stories of this report are the result of the collective work and endeavours of my 3,200-plus Skretting colleagues throughout the world. Every single one of us is committed to establishing an even more sustainable aquaculture industry.


Food systems and planetary challenges

In order to be sustainable, food systems need need to be developed in ways that generate positive, simultaneous value along the economic, social and environmental dimensions. Therefore, food systems around the world are expected to deliver on the “triple challenge”.
