Spotlight Target Area: Energy
Inspired by green ethics, Island Seafoods has a clean carbon footprint. It operates its
own hydro-electric plant which saves over 350 tonnes of greenhouse gases each year,
ensuring the long-term sustainability of its operations.
Building upon the success of its hydro-electric plant, the company has recently
commissioned a wind turbine to ensure further self-sufficiency for its energy needs.
Within the packaging target area, the company set a target to increase the
recyclability of product trays to 10% of total trays by 2021. In 2020, the company was
55% ahead of target with further initiatives planned into the future.
