Nature-related risk reporting for investors: a case study of the aquaculture sector

WWF, Storebrand Asset Management, Grieg Seafood, Norwegian Institute of Nature Research (May 2022)

The joint authors of this report looked at how currently-available information on salmon aquaculture can be used to inform seafood-sector investors about their key nature-related risks – for example, impact on biodiversity or water quality. The analysis also highlighted key areas in which the space needs to improve – for example, the need for comparable qualitative metrics, definitions, and a framework for an objective reporting on dependencies. The authors also pointed out that the methodology used could be scaled up to look at global aquaculture across all species.
