The Scottish Salmon Company (SSC) and Tighean Innse Gall (TIG) recently hosted a joint educational sustainability open day for staff at the SSC Marybank site in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis.
The event was held in October and over 40 SSC team members from the area took part in the open day, which included practical advice that staff could implement in their own homes, as well as hints and tips on waste recycling, home energy and insulation.
Passionate about sustainability across all areas of the business, earlier this year SSC became the first Scottish salmon producer to achieve ‘Best Aquaculture Practice’ (BAP) certification for all of its marine sites, one of the aquaculture industry’s highest standards.
Craig Anderson, Chief Executive of The Scottish Salmon Company, said: “The Scottish Salmon Company is committed to sustainability not only within our operations, but also in the communities in which we live and work. We are proud to have hosted the joint educational sustainability open day with TIG to promote energy saving, responsible use of resources, waste reduction and recycling with our team.”
Stewart Wilson, CEO of TIG, said ‘We are very keen to reach as much of the community as possible. The Scottish Salmon Company is a major employer and this initiative is therefore very welcome. We were grateful to work with SSC to engage with their employees, reduce carbon emissions and support the wider sustainability of the Western Isles.”
