Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Working to achieve UN’s SDGs should be everybody’s duty; every country, every business and every one of us.

UN’s world goals for sustainable development are called Transforming our world and is dubbed the most ambitious plan ever made for the future of our planet. In a business, where integrity, accountability and credibility are key words, Polar Seafood has worked with, for example, MSC certification of fish and shellfish, and sustainability for many years. It is therefore entirely natural that the UN's SDGs are included in our work as a frame of reference when decisions are made. Not only decisions made by the Board of Directors or by various executive boards throughout the group, but Polar Seafood's ambition is for the world goals to be in our mindset when fishing, processing packing, selling and distribution our products.

For the entire future world population, Polar Seafood considers all UN’s 17 SDGs to be important to achieve but to work focused towards these goals, we have identified three areas where we believe we can make the greatest possible contribution to achieving these goals and thus make a real difference.


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.
