Resource Use

We live in an exciting but challenging time. The world’s population is projected to hit 11 billion by 2100, and while experts agree the planet can produce enough food, the challenge is to make sure we do it sustainably and affordably. The world’s future food security is not a simple matter of producing more food. We are at the end of the era of cheap oil and materials. This, coupled with increased and changing consumer demand, means we have to produce more with less. This is why Espersen’s goal is to decouple our waste, energy and water use from our production output.

Goal: Use resources responsibly with the aim of decoupling waste, water and energy use from our production footprint.

Objectives

  • Cap greenhouse gas emissions at 2011 level within the Espersen group.

  • Decouple energy use from kg of product produced.

  • Decouple water use from kg of product produced.

  • No waste to landfill by 2022.

90% carcass utilization for human consumption by 2022.
