BioMar celebrates 'record-breaking' sustainability metrics


Aquafeed producer BioMar says it achieved record-breaking sustainability metrics last year by advancing its BioSustain programme.

“2023 was a landmark year for BioMar as we made significant strides in our sustainability journey,” said chief executive Carlos Diaz at the launch of the company’s 2023 Sustainability Report.

“Our achievements reflect our dedication to not only advancing the aquaculture industry but also ensuring that our practices positively impact the environment and society. This report underscores our commitment to transparency, accountability, and continuous improvement – which there is definitely room for.”

Last year’s highlights included completion of a Double Materiality Assessment (DMA) has strengthened BioMar’s sustainability strategy, ensuring alignment with the most critical aspects for both the business and its stakeholders.

Smaller footprint

BioMar, whose customers include Scotland salmon farmers Scottish Sea Farms and Loch Duart, also achieved notable reductions in its carbon footprint, with targets validated to meet the 1.5°C pathway established by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

The Danish company said it also increased use of circular and restorative ingredients, furthering its commitment to responsible sourcing and sustainable aquaculture practices.

Its ongoing capacity building initiatives have empowered thousands within the value chain, fostering a culture of innovation and responsibility, said BioMar.
