Norpac strives to continually develop steps to responsible environmental practices. Reductions in our waste and carbon foot print have been of considerable focus. We have implemented industry leading technologies to reduce packaging, improve vessel efficiency, reduce carbon in the logistic chain, and reduce impact and interaction with non targeted species.
Understanding Our Involvement
We understand we must lead by example, and continually seek to understand better our impact upon the environment, and how we can improve our operations to be an example for other fishing enterprises encouraging them to move toward "Best Practices".
Our innovative practices are the driving force behind our business model. We continually work toward practices that add value to our products and minimize our impact upon the environment.
Our primary capture species are Highly Migratory Species (HMS) which travel great distances. Therefore, we are dependent upon other regions of the world, and other fishing practices, as much or more than upon our own.
- Reduced non-biodegradable packaging products by two-thirds.
- Reuse packaging materials to the extent possible to alleviate the amount of refuse that may otherwise find its way to landfills.
- Recycle organic waste stream by transforming it into feed and fertilizer that is supplied to local farms.
- Work with broad based coalitions of stakeholders to develop fishery improvement plans (FIP).
