No room for complacency
Climate change is one of the biggest issues facing society. In October 2018, the United Nations issued a “last call” for action on phasing out fossil fuels.
The time for businesses and other organisations to make this change is now. The food industry, in particular, has a major role to play in meeting the carbon targets set out by the IPCC and the wider scientific community. And, while the poultry segment has traditionally a lower carbon footprint than other parts of the food industry, there is no room for complacency.
A win-win solution
Helping our clients reduce their energy usage – and hence their emissions – has been a long-term focus for us. Clean, energy-saving solutions are an integral part of our innovations, such as the HatchCare hatcher and our revolutionary chick transportation system, HatchTraveller. Besides their greatly reduced environmental impact, these ‘green’ solutions have an important secondary benefit: reduced costs. Indeed, HatchTraveller users save up to 80% on their fuel expenditure compared to owners of traditional transport systems.
We are not stopping here
One thing is for sure: the need for sustainable, long-term energy solutions will intensify in the years ahead. Our challenge is to continue developing new, better technologies that make transitioning to clean energy solutions not only viable for companies, but the most practical option from an economic perspective. This will mean looking beyond the tried and tested and working at the edge of the impossible. With innovations such as hybrid-power chick transportation, space-saving vertical farming, and energy-saving solutions, we are tackling the problem head-on. Working with our clients and partners across the supply chain, we aim to have a positive long-term influence on the energy landscape – just as we have had in other fields. Together, we can change the game and write a new future for people and planet.
