In recent years, we have noticed a huge increase in sustainability interest and have received requests from all our units and departments, as well as from customers and external stakeholders. Ever since the launch of BioSustain in 2007, sustainability has become a core of Biomar's purpose.

Welcome to the BioSustain Masterclass

Listen to our Global Sustainability Director Vidar Gundersen introduce environmental issues that are posing major challenges to us all. Global warming, deforestation, and water use are affecting everyone on this planet, every single day. It is time to rethink.

Circular Economy

While Circular Economy certainly has become a buzzword in recent years, we want to explain exactly what that means, as it essentially boils down to our resources and how we use them.

Waste management

Responsible consumption & production is a very important topic within sustainability. Overconsumption and irresponsible production are detrimental to sustainable development.

Global warming

The Paris climate agreement aims at holding global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius and to “pursue efforts” to limit it to 1.5 degrees Celsius. To accomplish this, countries have submitted Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) outlining their post-2020 climate action.

Biodiversity and land use change

Biomar is a recognised driver of certified deforestation-free responsibly produced commodities. Encouraging farmers to increase productivity without increasing their environmental footprint, helps protect vital ecosystem services that local communities depend on.

Carbon Cycle

The carbon cycle is nature's way of reusing carbon atoms, which travel from the atmosphere into organisms in the Earth and then back into the atmosphere over and over again. Most carbon is stored in rocks and sediments, while the rest is stored in the ocean, atmosphere, and living organisms.

Resource Scarcity

When you think of sustainability, you often think about typical things like climate change, animal welfare, deforestation, biodiversity. But there's a whole additional side to sustainability that is really important to our industry: resources.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

What are the UN SDGs and why are they so important, and why should they be adapted at company level by any responsible organisation with activities and supply-chain spanning the globe?

Global Sourcing Policy

We bring integrity, sustainability, and human rights commitment to all stages of our value chain.
