Aleph Farms Outlines Path to Net Zero Emissions by 2030
Aleph Farms announced its roadmap for reaching net-zero emissions in its operations by 2025 and the entire value chain by 2030 to fulfill commitments established in April 2020.
The meat product company will pursue a strategy of optimizing its energy efficiency, transitioning to renewable energy, and offsetting unavoidable emissions through the decarbonization of its production lines and supply chains. The company also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ENGIE Impact to work together on integrating efficiency and clean energy into Aleph Farms’ operations.
“The production of food is one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions on the planet today, and a driving reason why Aleph Farms is making long-term sustainability a top priority,” Dr. Lee Recht, VP of sustainability at Aleph Farms, said in a statement. “Our roadmap represents significant research that will enable us to fulfill our commitment to total net zero within this decade and we strongly encourage other companies within the agrifood ecosystem to work to eliminate their carbon footprint as soon as possible.”
Aleph Farms will also work with CE Delft to analyze the life cycle impacts of Aleph Farms’ production line and supply chain and identify ways to improve its ecological footprint.
