BioMar was the first company within the aquaculture industry to be certified as sustainable, according to the DNV ProSustain standard.
BioSustain lays the foundation
The tool used in BioSustain, BioMar's sustainability programme, is based on BASF's methodology. It has been developed to measure and evaluate sustainability throughout the chain. BioSustain is also based on the principles behind Agenda 21.
BioSustain is presented on its own website, www.biosustain.world, and documents our systems, composition and source of raw materials, feed-related tools and concepts, practical examples and GRI reports.
The BioSustain concept is built on four levels.
The BioSustain concept is built on four levels
- Laws and regulations
At its basis are laws, rules and regulations. This ensures high CSR standards. We only use suppliers that fulfil our requirements in terms of sourcing, the environment, certification and HR policies.
- Fundamental systems
To ensure our intentions are complied with, we implement several standards and certified management systems with programmes for improvement.
- Current measures
Critical conditions are monitored especially and quickly adapted if necessary; procurement and use of raw materials, certification schemes and quality assurance, use of regulatory agencies etc.
BioSustain has tools and methods for further improvement of sustainability with the optimisation of feed, breeding, processing and transport through, amongst other things, eco-effectivisation such as analysing environmental impacts with all processes, routines and resource use.
