7.3 Skretting Italy's CarbonBalance®

Skretting Italy’s CarbonBalance® has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Product Innovation of the Year category of the prestigious edie Sustainability Leaders Awards 2022. This is a fantastic achievement in a year where edie received its highest number of entries ever, and an important recognition of the work we are doing across Nutreco to achieve our purpose of Feeding the Future.

CarbonBalance® also follows the path of another Skretting product, MicroBalance FLX, the winner of the 2018 edie Sustainable Leaders Award in the Product Innovation category.

This latest solution is helping fish farmers reduce their operations’ carbon footprint. It includes the first ever carbon-neutral aquafeed, Feed4Future, along with an entire suite of services designed to enable farmers to produce fish in a fully carbon- neutral way. Any residual emissions not reduced by the feed and sustainable farming methods can be offset by purchasing carbon credits.Feed4Future’s feed formulation provides optimised nutrition with a carbon footprint at least 5% lower than comparable standard products and can lead to a 30% reduction of the emissions generated by a farmer’s fish throughout the life cycle. Skretting is currently in the early stages of introducing CarbonBalance® to the market.

"AQUA De Mâ has always been active in promoting a positive image of aquaculture, communicating our efforts to prove the commitment we have for sustainability and environmental care. I therefore welcome CarbonBalance® as a correct and forward-looking strategy to tackle the urgent and complex issue of climate change. Skretting is a front- runner in addressing this issue, with a concrete and immediately available offering such as Feed4Future.”
