Supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The United Nations has stated that a profound change of the global food and agriculture system is needed to nourish the current estimated 765 million hungry people around the world, with an additional two billion hungry people worldwide by 2050.

As salmon farmers we know that we produce one of the most delicious, healthy, nutritious and environmentally sustainable sources of protein. Our operations don’t require access to arable farmlands, use very little fresh water and have low energy requirements. We also partner with organizations to carry out wild salmon enhancement and protection initiatives - helping to support this iconic species. By eating farmed salmon, you are supporting a low-carbon footprint organization, and helping to reduce the demand on wild salmon stocks. In essence – you are having your salmon, and eating it too.
The United Nations is well known for its efforts to improve conditions world wide – including their recently launched Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Action Platform for Sustainable Ocean Business - of which Cermaq was one of the first signatories.
We also support the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) . While we support all 17 of the SDGs, we feel we can help influence:
- SDG 2 – No Hunger;
- SDG 8 - Good Jobs and Economic Growth;
- SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption;
- SDG 13 – Climate Action; and in particular,
- SDG 14 – Life Under Water.
