The Board of Directors of Lerøy Seafood Group ASA has one member who is assigned extended responsibility for the environment and sustainability. In the Group, the CEO has main responsibility for this area. The Head of Quality & CSR is responsible for coordinating work involving the environment/sustainability for all the companies within the Group. Responsibility is delegated to the Managing Director of each subsidiary.
Lerøy Seafood Group is one of the largest seafood corporations in the world. We live off the natural resources produced in the sea and rely on these resources being properly managed so that we can continue to sell seafood in the future. The management of Lerøy Seafood Group will do their utmost to ensure that the products manufactured and purchased comply with the prevailing rules and regulations of our industry.
We will furthermore strive to find the most environmentally friendly and sustainable systems for our products via close cooperation with our customers and suppliers of fish feed and transport. Lerøy Seafood Group will continuously seek to introduce improvements that will reduce pollution and help protect the environment. Our employees will focus on the company’s environmental targets. In fact, Lerøy Seafood Group will include the environment as one of its main focus areas going forward, in terms of both employees and our products.
WHAT ARE OUR FOCUS AREAS?
For Lerøy Seafood Group as a corporation, maintaining a constant focus on areas where we have the greatest influence in terms of sustainability is essential. Based on a critical evaluation of the value chain and our processes, we have concluded that we currently have the greatest influence within our work on the different areas related to our ﬁsh-farming activities. A major share of our efforts related to the environment and sustainability will therefore focus on ﬁsh farming.
A materiality assessment was performed in 2015, involving interviews of in-house and external stakeholders. The assessment concluded that our sustainability reports should focus on five main areas: product, employees, environment, society and value chain. These areas will therefore receive particular focus in the company’s GRI and sustainability reports.
