Lerøy Seafood Group is among the 10 companies awarded climate winners in PwC's annual climate index 2022
Among Norway's 100 largest companies, there are only 10 companies that have satisfactory reporting and emission cuts required to meet the Paris Agreement.
Lerøy is putting in significant work to reduce and measure climate emissions throughout the value chain.
Lerøy have targeted measures in identified material areas such as:
- Use alternative feed ingredients with a lower climate footprint
- Contribute to the development of alternative fuel sources with a lower climate footprint through the Green Shipping Programme
- Self-developed emission calculator - enables us to choose logistics solutions with a lower climate footprint
- Electrification – through the value chain to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels
We have achieved this:
- Lerøy is the first to use algae oil and insect meal, and is helping to develop the industry with new feed ingredients
- Deforestation-free value chain for soy
- Installation of solar panels at several factories
- From 2020 to 2021, Lerøy reduced its overall greenhouse gas emissions by 8%
Sustainability in focus
Lerøy's goal is to cut climate emissions by 46% by 2030.
