Mowi ranked most sustainable protein producer
Mowi has been ranked as the world's most sustainable protein producer for the second year in a row by the FAIRR Initiative.
Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index assesses the world's 60 largest publicly-listed animal protein producers, worth a combined US$338 billion. Firms are ranked against ten environmental, social and governance (ESG)-related criteria including greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, antibiotic usage and working conditions.
"The fact that Mowi is ranked as number one yet again is a testament to the vision of our leadership team and the commitment of everybody at Mowi to execute this vision. 2020 has been and continues to be a challenging year for all businesses, but this shows that Mowi has managed to remain true to its values and stated commitments to be a sustainable protein producer and lead the Blue Revolution," said Mowi CEO Ivan Vindheim.
The primary purpose of Coller FAIRR Protein Producer Index is to enable and support investor decision-making on the protein sector. The index is also a benchmark to help animal protein companies assess themselves against their peers in the sector and improve their management and reporting of risks.
Catarina Martins, Mowi's chief sustainability officer, said: "We have adopted a global approach to climate change, through the development of a low-carbon business model. We have developed a low carbon transition plan which includes a comprehensive evaluation of our impact on climate change, relevant climate-related risks and opportunities, as well as proposals for climate change mitigation measures. We continue to work towards these targets and be transparent about our progress."
