Polar Seafood considers high quality education to be essential and necessary in the work of sustainable development. As Greenland's largest privately owned company, it is natural for us to take responsibility for educating and developing the Greenlandic society. It is also important for us to continuously ensure that all our employees throughout the group have the necessary skills by providing training opportunities. In the work of ensuring quality education, Polar Seafood has developed a candidate program in collaboration with other educational institutions in Greenland and the Nordic countries.
Responsibility and integrity have always been key concepts in the way Polar Seafood has conducted business. It is natural for us to increase the focus on responsible production and consumption as the pressure increases on the world's natural resources - resources that must also benefit future generations.
Marine life is included as world goal 14 in the UN's 2030 agenda for sustainable development and the rapidly growing worldwide demand for sustainable fishing fortunately reflects interest in this area. Through our work of obtaining MSC certification of our products, Polar Seafood has worked for this for many years and welcome the demand.
It is a Greenlandic tradition passed down from generation to generation to care for the marine resources as the prerequisite for survival, knowing that overexploitation of natural resources would inevitably lead to hunger. With Polar Seafood´s roots in Greenland, this old strategy - natural sustainability - is the cornerstone that we proudly transfer to modern, industrialized fishing today.
