Entities included in the organization's sustainability reporting

The company has audited consolidated financial statements on public record. For information regarding the list of entities included in financial reporting, please, visit Lerøy Annual Report 2023.

All reporting entities report relevant ESG data in the reporting system Cemasys which consolidates the information on a Group level. There are no adjustments to information for minority interests as it is not relevant in the given context. If mergers and/or acquisitions occur it is taken account into reporting and the reporting is accordingly adjusted to ensure completeness. The approach does not differ across disclosures in this Standard and/ or across material topics.

An overview over entities included in the organizations's sustainability reporting can be found below. A change compared to previous reporting period is that a new reporting entity (Lerøy Ausevoll) is added to ESG reporting. Lerøy Austevoll is an acquisition acquired in 2023.
