We are committed to environment preservation, investing permanently in technology to minimize the impact of our effluents, emissions, and residues conducting our operations with eco-efficiency, aligned with the Commitments to a Sustainable and Responsible Fishing.
Austral has implemented modern technology for the treatment of effluents allowing us to comply with the Maximum Permissible Limits for the Fishmeal and Fish Oil Industry established by DS-010-2008-PRODUCE. It makes us an eco-efficient company due to a better recovery of solids and fats present in the pumping water, minimizing contamination and favoring sustainability of the marine ecosystems.
The investment in the construction of the most eco-efficient vessel of the country (F/V Don Ole) was US$ 30 million and the continuous investment in sonars, radars and RSW systems improvement of our other vessels exceeded approximately US$ 13 million in the last 4 years.
We started with the Pisco Plant with an investment of approximately US$ 2.7 million and will continue with the conversion of the boilers in Chancay and Coishco.
All our production plants have been recorded in the registry of Good Practices of the OEFA thanks to our good management and compliance with environmental standards.
We conduct awareness and education programs on environmental care such as cleaning of beaches, eco-speeches, environmental contests, promotion of biogardens intended for the community and our collaborators. They are focused on the promotion of the 3R’s and energy and water care.
Austral Group is part of the Corporate Climate Commitment Initiative looking for evidencing the commitment and advances of the private sector in topics related to climate change.
