BASF has committed to a more sustainable poultry value chain as a founding member of the US Roundtable for Sustainable Poultry & Eggs (US-RSPE) and the International Poultry Welfare Alliance (IPWA). The US-RSPE and the IPWA are initiating an effort to establish a living strategy on sustainability and animal welfare that will be anchored in science and a continuous improvement philosophy. BASF will contribute its leadership with the US-RSPE to help establish the first sustainability strategy and metrics for the US poultry and egg industry.
BASF recognizes benefit in value-chain wide sustainability approaches and sees the US-RSPE and IPWA as a substantial opportunity for the poultry and egg industry. “As a founding member, we look forward to supporting the sustainability journey of the poultry and egg industry,” said Chris Rieker, Vice President Business Management for BASF Animal Nutrition. “We will continually learn and bring our broad knowledge of science-based metrics and integrated value chain sustainability strategies to collaboratively identify and help leverage industry opportunities.”
