Eggs & The Environment
Alberta egg farmers are responsible stewards of the land they farm, who are committed to sustainable development and minimizing their environmental impacts. Egg farmers are embracing innovative barn construction features, energy-efficient technologies and farming practices to reduce their carbon footprint.
EFA developed a Sustainability Strategy in 2014, which lays the foundation for building a sustainable provincial egg industry, by establishing 4 pillars that encompass all the EFA does. Alberta egg farmers support EFA’s pioneering work in the area of sustainable egg production.
Some highlights from EFA’s Sustainability Strategy include:
- Launch of Producer Environmental Egg Program
- Construction of the Net-Zero Egg Barn
- Hosting the Environmental Stewardship Workshop
