On the 23rd April 2008, Marine Harvest entered into a historical partnership with WWF- Norway. Together we will work to reduce the environmental impacts and ecological footprint of aquaculture.
Environmental impacts are a key concern in all Marine Harvest activities, and we want to strengthen the focus on sustainable fish farming with leading environmental standards. A partnership agreement with WWF-Norway will help Marine Harvest in our work with environmental challenges.
Marine Harvest has a strong view that the farming of safe, healthy and sustainable fish is a business for the future. We are formalizing our cooperation with WWF-Norway in order to increase the fact-based understanding of the aquaculture business, says Åse Aulie Michelet, CEO of Marine Harvest
MH and WWF-Norway have the following shared objectives under this agreement:
* Protection of marine and freshwater biological diversity.
* Significant reduction of the ecological footprint and environmental effects of MHs operations.
* Minimize climate change impacts from fish farming activities and processing.
