Positive environmental impact is core to BioFeyn´s business.
Commitment to sustainability
We are committed to building solutions that are as good for the planet as they are for people.
Our sustainability strategy is built on three pillars:
1. Maximizing natural efficiencies in the food system
Many of the most valuable nutrients that go into feed and food never make it to the tissues where they are needed. This is because they can lose their effect over time during shipping or storage, interact with other ingredients to become less effective, or are poorly absorbed during digestion. BioFeyn technology can solve many of these problems, providing a natural solution to improve ingredient integrity and uptake.
2. Minimizing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions
When nutrients aren’t absorbed into animals, they pass through them and wash back out into the environment. In the case of aquaculture, this can lead to pollution and alter marine ecosystems in unintended ways. By reducing the amount of nutrient waste, BioFeyn technology can lighten the environmental impact of farming.
BioFeyn is committed to working with the most climate-conscious feed manufacturers, ingredient producers, and farms. As part of this commitment, we are calculating our greenhouse gas emissions to ensure that they are at industry-leading levels. By maximizing ingredient efficiency, we are also lowering the carbon footprint of the salmon farming industry as whole, helping to make one of the lowest carbon agricultural industries even lower.
3. Applying a systematic ‘One Health’ approach
Humans, animals, and the environment are connected and interdependent. Many humans get primary nutrition from animals and animal products. Farmed animals rely on humans for feed and rearing. And the environment provides the right conditions, like clean water and air, for living, thriving, and growth.
At BioFeyn, we recognize these connections, and are doing our best to ensure we consider system impacts in our decision-making. This means our products are focused on improving animal health, reducing resource use, and supporting the overall production of wholesome and nutritious fish to human consumers.
Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015 the United Nations introduced a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. BioFeyn supports these goals and is aligning our own targets with those outlined by the SDGs.
Sustainability in aquaculture
We’re fortunate to be working in an industry, salmon farming, where environmental consciousness is high, and we want to do our part to contribute to its growing excellence. Some of the most sustainability-focused professionals in the world are working to improve the quality and standard of raising salmon. This is because they know, as do we, that when salmon are raised right, they’re part of the solution, not the problem. Salmon are one of the most environmentally friendly sources of nutrition on the planet, providing a virtually unparalleled combination of protein, omega-3s, and micro and macronutrients, while requiring considerably less energy, water, and land than other sources of protein.
