A holistic approach
In our efforts to build more resilient food systems and enable greater food security, our work centers on four pillars of sustainability.
Environmental sustainability for us means managing and minimizing our use of resources while tackling global issues, such as climate change, water scarcity and biodiversity loss. This includes designing our processes and production lines with sustainability and resource efficiency in mind and making sure to continuously improve as we grow. We carefully manage our environmental footprint on an on-going basis. This includes conducting a Life Cycle Assessment on our products and measuring our corporate ecological footprint (GHG, water, and waste). In addition, we have launched programs for energy efficiency and waste management that help us meet our environmental goals. We’ve set ambitious yet attainable targets to reach net zero carbon by 2030 throughout our supply chain (Scopes 1, 2 and 3).
Economic sustainability for Aleph Farms means enabling a viable economic future for our products. Part of this is making sure that these products are globally accessible and affordable. Our partnerships are vital to achieving this. In order to drive sustainable growth for our business, we collaborate with partners both in our upstream and downstream supply chains, helping us reduce costs, drive economies of scale and achieve price parity with the conventional meat market. We promote policies designed to ensure that food prices, including and especially meat prices, better reflect the true cost of production and consumption.
Social sustainability to us means ensuring that we are part of an equitable and just transition to a more sustainable economies, and specifically more resilient food systems. With the potential scale that cellular agriculture represents in creating a new paradigm in animal agriculture, we proactively engage our stakeholders and promote fair labor practices as we build our supply chain. We are actively exploring partnerships that can bring value to players operating within animal agriculture, especially livestock farmers. We are collaborating with partners in different markets to champion local food cultures and strengthen local communities.
Health & Nutrition Sustainability
As a company that is active in food technology, the quality, safety, and nutritional value of our products is of fundamental importance. As we scale, we prioritize ensuring that our products are globally accepted and trusted based on the highest standards for food safety. As we approach market entry, we assure regulatory agencies around the world that we meet strict food safety standards in our production processes and that our final products are safe to eat. We view regulatory bodies as our indispensable partners in building trust with consumers.
We are proud to introduce our very first Impact Report. In it, we aim to set out our vision for more resilient food systems and our progress in turning that vision into reality. This report is an opportunity for us to share details of our journey so far – from the establishment of our company in 2017 through the end of 2022, including challenges, commitments, and updates on our progress. Following this report, we will continue to publicly document our progress on impact on a biennial basis.
