Transparency

GSI has launched an interactive online Sustainability Report setting a new standard for transparency reporting for a global food sector. The report demonstrates the GSI members' strong commitment to continuous improvement in the sustainability of their operations.

"The launch of GSI's Sustainability Report demonstrates the group's leadership in creating greater transparency across the aquaculture sector. It is a remarkable achievement that they have developed this collective reporting platform, and we strongly encourage other production sectors and platforms to follow suit," said Piers Hart, Global Lead for Aquaculture at WWF.

The launch of the Sustainability Report represents a major accomplishment for the GSI, and will be critical for reporting against many of their objectives. The online Sustainability Report includes data on:

  • Key environmental and social indicators for each GSI member
  • Progress towards GSI's goal of achieving Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification across all farms by 2020
  • The efficiency of farmed salmon as a sustainable and healthy source of protein

The report provides data for all GSI members in the following areas: fish escapes, fish mortality, antibiotic use, sea lice levels, sea lice treatments, wildlife interactions, use of marine ingredients in feed, compliance, occupational health and safety, and interactions with the local community.

The report represents many months of hard work and collaboration from all GSI companies.Collecting and collating comparable data from such diverse regions where GSI operates has been a challenging process, but over time and with more experience, the GSI will look to show significant progress in the data expressed in the Sustainability Report.
