Chicken Council Releases Sustainability Report
USAgNet - 09/17/2021
The National Chicken Council released its inaugural sustainability report, which provides a comprehensive overview of U.S. chickens raised for meat, known as broilers, and the industry's collective progress in its environmental, broiler welfare and social impact
The 2020 U.S. Broiler Chicken Industry Sustainability Report was submitted to the Scientific Group of the U.N. Food Systems Summit 2021, ahead of the U.N. Food Systems Summit to be held September 23 in New York City.
Guided and inspired by the call to action in the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the report is also intended to complement the important work being done by the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Poultry & Eggs, which is developing a framework for collecting data to further innovation, drive improvements and support communication about the measured and verified sustainability of U.S. chicken.
Six essential industry topics are addressed in NCC's report, including: air, land and water; broiler health and welfare; employee safety and wellbeing; food and consumer safety; community support; and food security. The report features new broiler life cycle assessment (LCA) data commissioned by NCC.
