How to Not Only Set a Climate Target, but Actually Make it Achievable. Lessons from Salmon Aquaculture.

The race to zero is on, and we know it needs to be done. But the question is how do we get there? Aquaculture already has a low carbon footprint, but improvements still need to be made to ensure we maintain our position as a climate-friendly option. The changes required are across the supply chain, and affect the whole industry, no matter of location. Recognizing that collective efforts could help accelerate change, over the last year the Global Salmon Initiative has been working in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund to establish an accounting framework for greenhouse gas emissions for the farmed salmon sector, from feed to consumer. Prioritizing stakeholder collaboration and shared learning, this project has developed a cohesive accounting framework with ambitious mitigation goals in mind. In this session we will share how the framework was developed, its uses for both farmed salmon and the wider aquaculture industry, and the many opportunities collaboration offers in scaling mitigation efforts from on the ground experience.
