The Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA) endorsed the Declaration of Sao Paulo, that is the commitment of International Poultry Council (IPC) as a leader in transforming the world through environmental and sustainable practices, in partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
During a signing ceremony at its bi-annual conference, a Commitment of the Poultry Meat Sector was signed by the IPC and the FAO in the presence of the IPC President Robin Horel and FAO’s Senior Animal Production Officer Badi Besbes, reinforcing the cooperation agreement renewed in 2018.
Focusing on five of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the IPC committed to the sustainable development of the sector, delivering benefits for both the planet and people globally. These included:
1. Zero hunger (SDG 2) – sharing good practices and promoting sustainable production;
2. Good health and well-being (SDG 3) – promoting poultry as a healthy choice and sharing good management and manufacturing practices;
3. Quality education (SDG 4) – building capacity to ensure high quality and sustainable production;
4. Industry, innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9) – Supporting innovative and sustainable industrialisation;
5. Climate action (SDG 13)– reducing greenhouse gas and other emissions.
