Bakkafrost ranked among top three producers for sustainability
Bakkafrost is among the top three performers in the 2020 Coller FAIRR Index and one of only three companies to rank as "low risk" for investors.
"We are very pleased to be recognised as one of the most sustainable protein producers in the world", said Regin Jacobsen, CEO of Bakkafrost. "Development and growth through sustainable investment is our top priority. We strive to supply the world's growing population with healthy and nutritious protein, raised in a sustainable way with the greatest respect for the environment".
In the company's latest sustainability report, Bakkafrost publicly committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its Faroese, Denmark operations by 50% by 2030.
In recent years, Bakkafrost has systematically improved its farming operations to minimise the carbon footprint.
"We are continuously introducing new measures to reduce our impact on the environment. With our fully vertical integrated value chain, we have a unique opportunity to produce healthy protein in a sustainable and responsible way, as we control all aspects of the production, from feed to ready-to-eat salmon", said Tordis Poulsen, Bakkafrost's group head of sustainability.
