Global Salmon Initiative
Global Salmon Initiative (GSI) is a leadership effort established by global farmed salmon CEOs committed to helping feed the world in a healthier, more sustainable way through advancements in responsible salmon farming. Representing 50% of the global farmed salmon industry, GSI members recognize their ability – and responsibility – to drive positive change at scale.
The GSI brings together 14 global salmon farming companies working together to improve industry sustainability. To learn more about our story watch our video.
To measure our progress in achieving our sustainability goals, third party evaluation is key. For this reason, GSI members are committed to achieving 100% ASC certification across all their farms.
Change at scale
All GSI members are committed to making real and measurable progress in their sustainability performance. To support this the GSI has chosen to focus efforts on three key industry areas where collaboration can support accelerated change at scale.
