BioMar Group - a global leader in the production of aquafeeds - has announced the release of its 2023 Sustainability Report. This comprehensive report delves into the environmental and social impacts of BioMar's operations, as well as highlighting the company’s solutions for tackling its ongoing sustainability challenges.

In the report, BioMar highlights several areas of progress, including that made concerning the BioSustain project. This programme, according to the aquafeed company, helps to drive the uptake of high quality, low-impact raw materials in feed recipes, thereby promoting sustainable aquaculture and responsibly produced seafood.

BioMar also brings attention to the notable reduction of its carbon footprint in line with targets set by the 1.5 ⁰C pathway established by the Science Based Targets Initiative, in addition to the company’s increased incorporation of circular and restorative ingredients.

"2023 was a landmark year for BioMar as we made significant strides in our sustainability journey. Our achievements reflect our dedication to not only advancing the aquaculture industry but also ensuring that our practices positively impact the environment and society. This report underscores our commitment to transparency, accountability, and continuous improvement - which there is definitely room for," said BioMar Group chief executive Carlos Diaz, in a press release.
