Tara Norton joined Navico as its first-ever chief sustainability officer, the company announced.
Parent to Lowrance, Simrad Yachting, B&G and C-MAP, Navico has made sustainability one of its core strategic pillars across its brands, products, operations and production.
“We are dedicated to being an environmentally responsible company,” said Knut Frostad, CEO of Navico Group. “We believe there is a common mutual interest within the marine industry and our consumers to drive this forward, and we care deeply about protecting the very environment in which we all work and play.”
Norton joins Navico from French multinational Engie Impact, where she worked with corporate and government clients to accelerate their transition to cleaner energies. Her expertise includes sustainable procurement and supply chain traceability and transparency, supplier engagement, climate change, human rights, labor rights and supply chain finance.
“In many ways, Navico has sustainability already in its DNA, so it’s a matter of building on the successes and enthusiasm to date to contribute to sustainable development for ourselves and the planet,” Norton said.
