TheInternational Meat Secretariat has published a report, "Pigs and the Environment," highlighting the global pig industry's effects on andresponsibilities towards the environment, as well as changes that certain countries have already started to make.
Sixteen countries, which collectively account for 78 percent of the world's pig meat production, provided data for the report. There is a broad range of measures outlined, including more efficient use of feed, water saving, manure handling and storage and bioenergy generation. “During our discussions it became clear that pork producers and processors in a wide range of countries have been investing in new and often innovative ways of using resources more efficiently to produce high-quality meat protein," said report author Mick Sloyan, chairman of the International Meat Secretariat pork committee and director of theBritish Pig Executive. "In addition, they are often managing the byproducts of production and processing a positive way, for example, to generate alternative energy sources and replacement inputs such as fertilizers. It was also clear that there is a strong commitment to accelerate these developments in order to meet the growing demand for meat in a sustainable way.”
The report, which uses data taken from theFood and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, will be updated as new data becomes available. The organizers of the report also hope to expand the number of countries involved.
