What Sustainability Is and Why It’s Important
Sustainability is “Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs,” as published in 1987 by the United Nations Brundtland Commission, which called for a strategy that united development and the environment.
Sustainability Policy: Eco-Harvesting
Eco-Harvesting proprietary technology developed by Kori’s partner Aker Biomarine protects the krill as they are brought onboard by an underwater vacuum. This technology separates unwanted by-catch and releases it unharmed.
Sustainability Policy: Traceability and Certifications
Kori’s partnerships with the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP), the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), and Friend of the Sea protect the krill harvest throughout processing to ensure the nutritional quality of its oil.
Sustainability Policy: Krill Harvesting Levels
Kori and its sustainability partnerships impose strict limits on how much they harvest. In total, less than 1% of the Antarctic krill biomass is harvested annually, well below the 10% level set by the UN in their definition of a sustainable fishery.
Sustainability Policy: Vertical Integration and Sustainable Packaging
Kori Krill Oil’s sustainability policy delivers quality products from catch to delivery of each bottle of Kori while protecting the marine ecosystem. All Kori Krill Oil boxes and bottles are 100% recyclable, including caps and labels.
