The Guidebook for Resilient Animal Agriculture

Environmental Defense Fund

Environmental Defense Fund’s Guidebook for Resilient Animal Agriculture provides a roadmap for companies to invest in and build a better, more sustainable and more profitable future.

The Guidebook includes step-by-step guidance for supply chain best practices for the animal agriculture industry:

  • Part I gives practitioners the information they need to build a sustainability framework for their company’s supply chain. E.g., assessing your company’s environmental footprint, setting goals for improvement, implementing solutions to mitigate environmental impacts, and measuring as well as reporting publicly on your progress.
  • Part II provides guidance on how to implement your sustainability plan and take actionable steps towards your goals. This new resource includes step-by-step implementation guides for each major impact area, case studies (focused on Unilever, Smithfield, Campbell Soup Company and poultry grower Spencer Pope) and additional resources for you and your supply chain partners.
