In recent years non organic waste handling technology have improved. Larger quantities, and different waste fractions, are today being material recovered or reused compared to a decade ago. There still is however a long way to go before waste handling on a local, and global scale can be considered circular.

Waste that is outside of a circular handling loop can pollute our oceans, and is one of the greater threats to marine life and biodiversity. Since our primary operations are mainly located in the fjords of Norway, ensuring that our wastes are collected, treated and disposed of in a safe and sustainable manner is therefore important to us.

Our production operations are located in several countries in Europa, making it difficult to standardise how we sort, handle and dispose of our own generated non organic wastes. It is also difficult to go into dialogue with local authorities and waste handling companies regarding this, because the infrastructure and legislation in the different countries is different.


Our ambitions in this area

All our non organic waste is re-used or material recovered.


What action has been taken

  • Local initiatives with waste handling companies to increase recycling share of waste.
  • Group initiative to find one waste handling company for our Norwegian operations (finished 2022).
  • Beach cleaning initiative (Approx: 2000 tons in Norway)
  • Fishing for litter (208 tons - 2020)
  • LSG project to reduce the use of plastic with 50 % within 5 years (2019 base year)


How we measure our impact

All companies in the group report all generated waste by fraction and disposal method on a monthly basis. This enables us to calculate our CO2e emissions from generated wastes in the group. It also enables us to keep track of, and implement actions to increase our share of recirculation.


Our dedicated long time work in the group to increase awareness for sustainable solutions, and our focus on data quality in reporting is beginning given a positive return compared to 2020. In addition our companies have in 2021 been in dialogue with our waste suppliers on how we together can increase the share of recycled waste. We have reduced our share of recirculation by 0,49 % in 2021.
