Feed ingredients represent around 80% of the carbon footprint of seafood farming and as the world transitions to a zero-carbon economy reducing our feed impact is essential.
The carbon footprint (CF) of feed is a measure of the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions generated from the different stages of the feed life cycle. Increased atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gasses, expressed in CO2 equivalents, cause the global warming that we are experiencing today. The only way to avoid the consequences is simple: reduce global GHG emissions.
BioMar follows the PEF* methodology when calculating carbon footprints and has set verifiable science-based targets through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). BioMar’s ambition is to reduce its feed carbon footprint by 1/3 by 2030, with the aim of ensuring that BioMar will achieve “net-zero” no later than 2050.
