The Scottish Salmon Company currently operates over 45 Marine farm sites with 7 Freshwater hatchery sites, 2 processing sites and 2 harvest facilities.  Our Marine and Freshwater sites occur throughout the West Coast of Scotland and the Western Isles and the company employs over 500 people.

The Scottish Salmon Company is committed to operating in an environmentally sensitive manner. The natural environment in which we operate is central to ensuring a sustainable business and a high quality Scottish product. 

Robust management procedures are integral to all our operations to ensure compliance with all relevant environmental legislation and driving continual improvement in our business.  These procedures are maintained through our Environmental Management System (EMS) which has been implemented to meet the requirements of ISO 14001.  The Scottish Salmon Company is also committed to complying with a number of applicable non-legislative standards including 'GlobalGap', 'Code of Good Practice for finfish Aquaculture', 'ISO 9001', 'Protected Geographical Indication' and 'British Retail Consortium'.

Our EMS provides a framework for setting and reviewing environmental objectives and targets by way of annual review.  Our EMS is communicated to all staff and relevant third party contractors and is routinely maintained and updated.  Our key environmental objectives and targets which are available to all our staff (and to the public via our website) are as follows:

-Promote energy saving with a target of a 5% reduction in total energy use by the end of 2017

-Commitment to the responsible use of resources to minimise the environmental impact of our business, with a specific target of 5% reduction in total water use by the end of 2017
