Tassal top of the table for sustainability


Friday, 11 December, 2015


Tasmanian salmon producer Tassal has been ranked number one in a report that benchmarks sustainability reporting and transparency in seafood companies.

Tassal is the only Australian company listed in the 2015 Seafood Intelligence report, and one of only four companies to achieve a corporate, social and environmental responsibility rating of excellent.

The report, which benchmarked companies against 145 key performance indicators, said comprehensive sustainability reporting enabled a seafood firm to deal with risks and crisis situations, helped drive the firm’s sustainability vision, provided credentials to justify its social licence to operate, and provided a means to engage with stakeholders.

Tassal chairman Allan McCallum said the company’s global number one ranking in the report was a significant achievement.

“There is no question that our sustainability program has delivered better outcomes for all our stakeholders and the business more broadly.”

The Seafood Intelligence report provides a snapshot of the 2014 and 2015 global seafood industry, available data and trends. It also provides context-setting information regarding the global salmon market and some of the challenges it faces.

The report provides industry organisations, authorities and ENGOs with an overview of the current status of the global aquaculture/farmed salmon ‘sustainability’ debate; and giving an insight into key industry decision-makers’ positions and expectations.
