Where applicable, data has been calculated according to industry standard GSI formulas.

In calculating ‘lost days’, Bakkafrost includes only scheduled work days, beginning the day after the accident or injury.

 

In calculation lost day rate, Bakkafrost includes the number of 'lost days' due to injury. Calculated as: (Total number of lost days/total number of working hours)x 180,000.

 

In calculating lost time injury rate, Bakkafrost includes the number of injuries at work and work-related, including fatalities, leading to unfitness for work and absence from the next working day or working shift between January – December. Calculated as: (Total number of lost time injuries/total number of working hours) x 1,000,000.

Number of fatalities of workers and contractors working at company premises between January – December.

All absence related to ones own personal health. Calculated as: Total number of absent days/Total work days

*Includes scope 1 and 2 emissions from Bakkafrost’s entire owned supply chain; including all fish oil, meal and feed production at Havsbrún – a proportion of which is sold externally. This also includes fuel used for vessels leased to other salmon farmers for delousing in the Faroe Islands; and harvesting of 4,200 tonnes of salmon for a competitor.

  • Electricity consumption (Scope 2) gives rise to indirect emissions, i.e. via combustion of fossil fuels by the power company to generate energy. Direct emissions (Scope 1) result from the combustion of fossil fuels, i.e. solid, liquid or gas for heating, creating propulsion in vessels etc.
  • The methodology used for the carbon accounting is The Greenhouse Gas Protocol, a Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (Revised Edition).
  • The chosen consolidation approach for emissions was operational control. All figures are direct consumption reported for each Business Unit, multiplied by an energy conversion factor (as appropriate) and carbon emission factor per unit consumed.
  • No estimates have been made for missing or incomplete data from across the operations.
  • All emission and conversion factors for direct emissions (Scope 1) are from DEFRA [UK] 2018’s dataset, while emission factors for electricity use are based on the most recent statistical data available obtained direct from SEV, the Faroe Islands energy generation company.
  • Tonnes of Carbon Dioxide equivalent (TC02e) has been calculated and stated here – this then takes account of the global warming potential attributed to the other two key greenhouse gases associated with combustion of fossil fuels, in addition to carbon-dioxide (CO2), i.e. methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O).
  • A routine internal review was completed in 2018. It highlighted a small error regarding the exclusion of a small amount of energy data. The missing data from 2017 equates to less than 0.5% of Bakkafrost’s total carbon footprint in 2017 and therefore is not considered to materially affect the carbon footprint for that year. Bakkafrost has introduced additional controls for the 2018 reporting cycle to address this past issue.
