Mowi is on top of the Coller FAIRR Protein Index, which ranks the world’s largest listed protein producers on sustainability.
The Coller FAIRR Index ranks the largest global meat, dairy and fish producers by looking at risk factors from use of antibiotics to deforestation and labour abuses. The Index is the world’s only benchmark dedicated to profiling animal protein producers and showcasing critical gaps and areas of best practice in the sector.
Mowi is ranked as overall best performer, and there are three salmon producers in top five.
“This is a great recognition of the work we at Mowi do on sustainability and animal welfare. I am extremely proud the work my colleagues do everyday to reduce our footprint and continue improving the way we operate,” says Mowi’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Catarina Martins.
The primary purpose of the Index is to enable and support investor decision-making on the protein sector.
“We hope investors will integrate the data and analysis on the performance of these global listed assets into their stewardship and investment decisions. The Index is also a benchmark to help animal protein companies assess themselves against their peers in the sector and improve their management and reporting of risks,” the report says.
Other salmon producers are also ranked high, with six companies included in the top ten.
“This shows the power of salmon farming. Aquaculture and salmon farming makes both a responsible investment case and is highly necessary to reduce the climate gas emissions going forward. We simply must produce and eat more seafood,” says Martins.
