While mitigating the environmental effects of our activities throughout our entire business, we also strive for the prosperity and ongoing development of our people, stakeholders and our community – in addition to the welfare of our salmon.

Our sustainability goals

Sustainable environmental practices have been an integral part of our business for many years. Aligning with the UN Sustainable Development Goals below, we have developed five sustainability goals which are specific to our business and act as a framework for all our activities.

We work to fulfil salmon aquaculture’s potential as a positive force for the health of people, nature and our company.

We are committed to caring for water in our region.

We are committed to using resources responsibly and reducing our impacts wherever possible.

We attract and develop talented people across our diverse roles and teams.

We are a trustworthy and transparent neighbour and community partner.

We are focused on the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Our commitment to the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact

We are a ‘Participant’ in the United Nations Global Compact, established to drive business awareness and action in support of achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The Global Compact encourages participants to adopt a principles-based approach to doing business more sustainably.

This means operating in ways that, at a minimum, meet fundamental responsibilities in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Our aim is to continuously incorporate the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact into strategies, policies and procedures, fulfilling our basic responsibilities to people and planet, but also setting the stage for more detailed sustainability work in our own industry.

Partnerships and commitments

We partner with a range of global and local initiatives and organisations to strengthen and transform the sustainability of salmon farming and aquaculture. As well as being one of the first to sign up to the Aquaculture New Zealand industry standard A+, we’re also a member of the Blue Economy CRC and Moananui.

Modern Slavery Statement

This is New Zealand King Salmon’s third Modern Slavery Statement, reporting under Australia’s Modern Slavery Act 2018. It sets out the steps we have taken (and continue to take) as a business to prevent modern day slavery in our own operations and across our supply chain.

Protecting our environment

From researching the best fish diet and monitoring the seabed and water quality, to making sure salmon farming is in balance with the local ecology, we are committed to sustaining and managing our resources for the long term.

Caring for our people and communities

The success of our business in today’s world is highly dependent on the communities and the environment in which we live and operate, as well as the people who care for our salmon.

Fish welfare

Our salmon are treated to the highest standards of care with fish health and wellness a priority. We employ an expert team to support our production team in implementing our Fish Health Management Plan, which aims to minimise disease and physical damage within our stock. This is achieved through:

Good Husbandry

Routine Health Monitoring

Early Investigation

Rapid Response

Ongoing Philosophy of Continual Improvement

Our people are our priority

As one of the largest employers in the region, we have a responsibility to help our community prosper. So, along with paying a fair wage and maintaining a safe and productive work environment, our long-term vision is to increase the number of jobs in our region.
