Welfare and sustainability: An inseparable alliance?

Reichelt, S.

As the title says, animal welfare and sustainability are an inseparable alliance. The reason for this? Animal welfare actually falls under one of the commonly recognized pillars of sustainability, the social pillar. This social pillar touches on a range of topics from feeding communities and supporting and lifting up your workforce to optimizing animal welfare. Not only does animal welfare inherently fall under sustainability in this way, it so heavily impacts the other two pillars, environmental and economic. This happens through great animal welfare contributing to a healthy animal enhancing their biological efficiency. With this efficiency comes financial soundness for a company as well as decreased resources.

By being good stewards of our animals, sustainability is impacted in a range of different ways that we will continue to delve into.
