Doing more with less
Sustainable thinking drives everything we do. That means not only finding ways to work more efficiently within our business but helping increase fish efficiency through our products, so that our customers get the most from production while using fewer resources. Working this way is fundamental to us all reducing our impact on the ocean. By seeking to put fish nutrition first, we are harnessing the power of science and nature to do more with less and help protect our seas.
As stewards of the sea, we partner with organizations who share our values, such as the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP), the Global Salmon Initiative (GSI) and the Seafood Task Force to name a few. Together, we can help safeguard the ecosystem beneath the waves.
What it looks like in practice
Working with farmers to develop more sustainable farming practices. In 2019, our efforts at one farm site in western Norway helped reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs) equivalent to taking 170 cars off the road for a year.
Partnering with various organizations, from start-ups and businesses to research groups, to develop sustainable sources of nutrients from novel origins. Since 2018, Cargill has supported HATCH, the world’s first accelerator program for aquaculture start-ups.
Running dedicated innovation centers around the world that enable more than 100 scientists and aqua specialists to develop the latest nutritional and technical knowledge and find solutions for local challenges.
Developing tools to report and model GHG emissions in feed and fish, to identify the best opportunities to manage down our GHG footprint and that of our customers.
Through partnerships like Seafood Business for Ocean Stewardship (SeaBOS) and Global Salmon Initiative (GSI), we’re working with customers, the food and retail industries, suppliers and even our competitors to advance and communicate understanding of seafood sustainability.
