Distribution of environmental impacts in the hamburger supply chain
Good agricultural practices
Based on these conditions, for INALCA the involvement of their breeders in the pursuit of environmental improvement objectives is indispensable. For this purpose, INALCA participates actively and promotes the use of voluntary standards and best agricultural practices in order to increase the sustainability of the production chain as a whole, while at the same time increasing efficiency and competitiveness.
in agricultural companies
Specifically, for the analysis of sustainability in farms, INALCA uses the tool developed by the international SAI PLATFORM (Farmer Self Assessment – FSA), to whose drafting are actively participating and the LCA studies based on the methodology defined by the EPD© System. These tools will be used to better understand the specificities of the national bovine sector and will include an assessment of the major environmental impacts, first of all the assessment of water resources and greenhouse gas emissions, enabling the identification of areas of strength/weakness and the most effective improvement paths.
