Austral Fisheries, WA

Austral Fisheries is one of Australia’s largest commercial fishing companies, and they have continued their decades long commitment to leadership in sustainability by becoming the first seafood company in the world to be carbon neutral. The fisheries they catched are independently certified as sustainable and well managed by the Marine Stewardship Council. They have recently achieved ‘carbon neutrality’ as a business and for our products, as certified under the Australian Government National Carbon Offset Standard. They are currently investing in offsets that are generated from a biodiverse revegetation project in the Western Australian wheatbelt, repairing degraded farmland and bringing economic activity to the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor. That program, in turn, is providing win-win solutions for the owners of the degraded land, the local communities and the restoration of ecosystems.
