Efforts on the International Stage

BioMar is working on the international stage for increased sustainability

Since the launch of our BioSustain programme in 2007, BioMar has worked with various international organisations and continuously participates in several international organisations to ensure increased sustainability and is an active participant in and contributor to the Antarctic Wildlife Research Fund (AWR), amongst other organisations.

This is the focus area for BioMar's sustainability programme. To ensure sustainability, environmental, social and economic criteria must all be fulfilled and they are within our areas of emphasis.

The ASC certification has established itself as a joint international standard for responsible fish farming, and an ASC feed standard is also on its way. The methodology behind BioSustain provides our customers with the basis for increased sustainability and minimised sustainability risks. It is based on certified methods of analysis, measurement and improvement. The methodology for "best practice" at BioSustain can easily be adapted to the requirements for ASC certification and therefore forms the basis to achieve these. BioMar wants to be an active partner in the optimisation of sustainability and adaptability to A
