Even more, we are an important part of local communities along the Norwegian coast. In many places, we are the cornerstone of the community and one of the most important employers. That leaves us with a great responsibility. Our legitimacy depends on our relationship with the local communities. To secure a good relationship with both the local citizens and the local authorities is vital for the company.
We are trying to create optimal ripple effects from our operations. In addition to creating necessary jobs, we purchase a high percentage of our goods and services locally. We are actively sponsoring local organisations, festivals and so on. These sponsorships are not to attract media attention but are a way of giving back to the communities.
As part of several of our certification schemes for our fish farms, we regularly have dialogue and information meetings with local communities where we have our farming activities.
