AALESUND, Norway EPAX AS launched a new Web site, EcoVision, dedicated to outlining the companys efforts in the sustainability, traceability and accountability of supplying marine-based omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs). The Web site offers up-to-date information on the companys eco-vision, explaining its position as a steward of the ocean.
We know that as an industry leader it is our responsibility to help set the standard for the ecological commitments of the marine-based omega-3 community; and because of our vertical integration, we have a unique story to tell about our efforts in this area, said Bjorn Refsum, CEO. We, along with our parent and sister companies, have taken measures throughout every process in the supply chain to make sure that both the health of the oceans and the consumer are protected. The new EcoVision Web site will help manufacturers and consumers have a better understanding of that.
The launch of the EcoVision site comes after the companys recent Friend of the Sea (FOS) certification. EPAXs sister company that oversees the fishing boats used in the catches also received this distinction. Additionally, the companys new headquarters building was designed with environmentally friendly characteristics including using excess heat from the factory to heat the office building during Norways long winters.
