Environment & Sustainability
Contemporary agriculture is largely associated with its environmental impact; consequently, FoodEnv-SL appreciates maintaining an equilibrium in order to reduce the negative environmental impact. Our on-farm greenhouse gas emissions are considerably low as renewable energy solutions and organic manure are utilized for provision of electricity and crop production respectively.
Fertilizer use and thermal emissions from electricity generation are major contributors to farm’s greenhouse gas emissions and global warming in general. Moving to organic manure for crop production and solar solutions for electricity are the simplest means to reduce our project’s impact on climate change.
Our effort in longevity and sustainability of our projects are overwhelming. We produce mostly what is required by the poultry, livestock and crops. We have strategically designed our farm operations to maintain production irrespective of the shocks in order to thrive in an unpredictable environment where the prices of raw materials soars.
