Carbon emissions in animal feed production With increasing focus on climate change and the rapidly changing environment, consumers need better information about the emissions impact of the food they buy. For the agriculture industry, this creates a need for consistency and transparency throughout the entire supply chain. There’s a lot of attention on the environmental effect of protein production, however 40-80% of carbon emissions from raising livestock are associated with the production of the feed, not the animal. As a global feed additive business, we have unique access to feed and protein producers across all continents, creating an opportunity to develop global insights and provide consistency in how we measure emissions across the globe. We are a member of the Global Feed LCA Institute (GFLI) which can be used to evaluate the environmental impact of feed produced around the world. This membership gives us full access to their global feed database which contains environmental impact data for feed ingredients produced around the world. Our sister business Intellync, a data and technology business, developed the world’s first on-farm carbon footprint assessment tool, delivering data insights to inform improvement strategies, completing thousands of farm-level carbon footprints and currently support a range of retailers and food processors in their efforts to reduce scope 3 emissions.
