Nutreco’s recently released 2017 Sustainability Report shows the company is on track with its 2020 targets focused around the four pillars of ingredients, operations, nutritional solutions and commitment.
“Our focus on sustainable nutrition innovation is clearly demonstrated in our 2017 Sustainability Report,” stated Knut Nesse, Nutreco CEO. “The Report shows that we are making substantial and measurable progress to achieving our targets and to playing our part in resolving current and future global food challenges.”
This year’s Sustainability Report highlights four of the company’s community development projects around the world supported by its global divisions Skretting and Trouw Nutrition.
The Skretting case-study highlighted work in Ecuador to reduce lost time injuries (LTIs). This has been a central focus of Skretting Ecuador in recent years and the OpCo continued to expand this important work in 2017. A long-term work plan was developed by the Operations Team, supported by the local management, which concentrated on both worker behavior and workplace conditions.
The sustainability report also features information on the marine algae oil-based N3 diet, applying an ecosystem management approach to the Peruvian anchovy fishery, Zambian tilapia, and more.
“We are immensely proud of these projects as they help small, subsistence-level farmers raise their yield and livelihood through efficient and sustainable food production, thereby addressing economic poverty,” explained Jose Villalon, Corporate Sustainability Director.
Nutreco aims to have 10 such community development projects in operation across the world by 2020.
