The article describes the case of energy efficiency in the seafood industry in Great Britain. The importance of the energy benchmarking in the sector is stressed. Among the actions taken by Northern Foods to conserve energy are implementing a project to reduce its carbon footprint and reduce energy use through the internal Operational Excellence Group. Life cycle assessment (LCA) is described as a tool that could be used to increase public and government awareness of the carbon footprint of a firm.
