Corporate Social Responsibility
Recognizing the interconnectedness of environmental and community health, Nordic Naturals has a strong record of Corporate Social Responsibility.
Embracing Our Communities and Our Customers
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a movement that encourages companies to think holistically about the impact of their activities on customers, employees, communities, and the environment. At Nordic Naturals, our dedication to CSR is fueled by our desire to improve health and nutrition around the world and our commitment to authenticity, integrity and sustainability.
As a manufacturer of premium fish oil, we recognize that our presence is felt from the oceans where we source our fish, to the communities in which we process and distribute our products. For us, CSR means proactively improving the quality of life of our employees and customers, and preserving the health of our environment and society at large.

Since our founding, Nordic Naturals has embraced responsibility for the impact our activities have on the environment. We've devoted a website to outlining the practices through which we honour this responsibility—www.planetnordic.com.
At Nordic Naturals we respect each individual for their uniqueness and the value they bring to our organization. We place an emphasis on self-empowerment and positive inner development.
We work interactively as an organization to encourage goal setting and excellence in both our personal and professional lives.
Our team embodies a culture of integrity and we encourage everyone to live longer, healthier lives. We offer comprehensive health benefits to employees including: maternity leave, paid time off, a retirement plan, bonuses and recognition, as well as paid educational opportunities that relate to their job.
All fishermen are compensated with highly competitive wages and protected by Norwegian labor laws. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), Norwegian labor laws are among the strictest in the world. Both the fishermen in Arctic Norway, and the Norwegian company that owns and operates the fishing fleet that harvests our South Pacific fish, are required by law to follow these strict Norwegian labor laws.
Our practices instill values that are integral to success as individuals and as a collective whole.
Nordic Naturals has strong and conscientious business partners that hold the company's mission with integrity. A sense of fairness and honesty is present in all channels of distribution. By creating loyal and lasting relationships with our customers and vendors, we maintain trust in our industry. Our ethics and awareness naturally demand truthful business relationships worldwide.
The Road Ahead
A Continuing Commitment
Nordic Naturals is continually looking for environmentally and socially responsible solutions to our everyday business practices. We encourage everyone to bring forward a commitment to environmental and social health by incorporating similar practices into their daily lives.
What's essential to us, as a company, is our commitment to delivering the world's safest, most effective omega oils so that each generation can live healthier, happier, and pass it on.
