Many food consumers surveyed in both North America and Europe say that sustainability considerations affect their food purchases, particularly for purchases of animal proteins and protein alternatives. Amazon, Target and Walmart have either launched or announced plans for net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emission stores and McDonald’s has pledged to reach net zero for all of its restaurants and offices in the UK and Ireland by 2030 and be net zero throughout its UK and Ireland supply chain by 2040. Odds are that companies that haven’t already been asked by customers, bankers or investors to measure and reduce (GHG) emissions will be asked soon.
The move to net zero will impact how poultry and eggs are fed, raised, processed, distributed and marketed. WATTPoultry.com and Evonik Animal Nutrition will record a panel discussion at IPPE 2023 titled, net zero and the future of sustainable poultry production. The panel will discuss the drivers of Net Zero programs, the framework for tracking and measuring GHS emissions, the primary sources of GHG emissions in the poultry supply chain, steps for reducing GHG emissions and what things poultry producers can do to accelerate progress towards net zero.
The panelists are:
- Andy Rojeski, head of strategy, investor relations and Net Zero programs, Pilgrim’s
- Faazi Adam, director of sustainability, animal nutrition line, Evonik
- Lara Moody, executive director of IFEEDER
The video recording of the panel discussion will be posted on WATTPoultry.com at the conclusion of IPPE.
