The Association for Renewable Energy & Clean Technology (REA) has named salmon producer Scottish Sea Farms as the winner of its Sustainability Award.
First launched in 2006, the awards seek to highlight the next ‘game changers’, recognising those organisations and individuals making real and measurable progress towards net zero.
Fending off stiff competition from industry names including BrewDog and Veolia, amongst others, Scottish Sea Farms was presented with the Sustainability Award for its carbon footprint-friendly initiatives, such as increasing uptake of renewable energies through and rethinking waste to create circular economy products.
“It helps that salmon farming has one of the lowest carbon footprints of all the livestock farming sectors, which is a great starting point,” Scottish Sea Farms’ Head of Sustainability & Development Anne Anderson said.
“At company level, we’re taking these strong credentials even further, working in collaboration with like-minded supply partners and customers to set a new bar for sustainability within the sector.”
