The Group keeps a focus on eco-friendly solutions and works on keeping both direct and indirect emissions as low as possible.
The framework selected for calculating CO2 emissions includes emissions from combustion processes required for the Group’s operations. This is referred to below as direct emissions, Scope 1.
The Group also wanted to gain an overview of the indirect impact on global warming of the company's activities and has therefore also included CO2 emissions from the production of electricity consumed by the Group. This is referred to below as indirect emissions, Scope 2.
All sources of greenhouse gas emissions from the Group's core activities have been included in the calculations.
The purchase of products and services, scope 3 is calculated for 2019 but not for 2020.
The group had a goal for 2020 to map scope 3 for 2019 in order to set scientific goals by 2030. This was implemented and we are pleased to announce that we have now had our science based targets approved by The Steering Committee of The Science Based Targets initiative.
By introducing SBT, The Group has set a clear course for climate reduction throughout the entire value chain. Both the company's board, group management and employees are behind the goals that have been set and we will work well together through "One Lerøy" to ensure that we will achieve the goals that have been set.
“Lerøy Seafood Group ASA commits to reduce absolute scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions 46% by 2030 from a 2019 base year.”
The target is aligned with a 1,5 degrees C pathway.
