Pioneering salmon producer Atlantic Sapphire has joined the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative.

As a member of the UN Global Compact, Atlantic Sapphire commits to implementing the ten Global UN Global Compact principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption throughout its operations.

By joining the UN Global Compact, Atlantic Sapphire reinforces its long-standing commitment to conduct a sustainable, responsible business and vows to make conscious decisions to ensure it runs its operations in accordance to internationally recognised Corporate Social Responsibility standards.

‘Acting with integrity is crucial to the success of Atlantic Sapphire as a fair employer and as a reliable partner to suppliers, customers, and shareholders,’ a representative of the company said.

‘Joining the UN Global Compact is a natural step for Atlantic Sapphire that will help us drive the culture of Corporate Social Responsibility in all the areas where we operate. This is in line with our Massive Transformative Purpose of feeding the world sustainably by pioneering Bluehouse farming.’

The United Nations Global Compact is a voluntary initiative based on company commitments to implement universal sustainability principles and to take steps to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
