In today’s world it is not enough for a company to be profitable; investors, customers and the public expect a company such as Tassal to be socially and environmentally responsible. In a place as beautiful as Tasmania, we understand that community and environmental values are of particular importance.
Tassal knows there is always room for improvement and we are open to new approaches and the input of all our stakeholders. We strive to be a company that our employees are proud to work for and we strive to be an involved, responsible part of the communities in which we operate.
Tassal is demonstrating its commitment to environmental and social sustainability through the development of our Environmental and Sustainability department and the creation of a
Chief Sustainability Officer position which sits within the executive management team.
The Sustainability Team led by the CSO consists of an Environmental and Sustainability manager, Environmental Technical Officer, Seal Management Officer and a Community Relations Coordinator. We also work closely with a number of environmental specialists and local researchers.
By taking a longer term view Tassal is considering the implications of social, economic and environmental factors in an integrated manner. This aims to reduce any environmental impacts as a result of our economic activities. After all, it is these environmental aspects that our activities rely on to produce high quality Tasmanian salmon.
Tassal is committed to working closely with regulatory bodies to ensure that our activities are compliant with best practice environmental management and legal requirements. We are working on building a solid relationship with our regulators as we recognise the important role they play in ensuring long term environmental sustainability of our industry.
