Attend our free webinar on “How sustainability metrics help to improve the footprint of livestock production” which will be hosted on November 15 at 15:00 CET below.

Evonik and BASF, two global chemical companies, have joined forces to improve sustainability in the animal protein industry. The growing need to quantify and reduce the environmental impact of the meat industry has brought about the development of Opteinics™, BASF’s environmental footprint calculation tool. The implementation of this digital solution combined with nutritional expertise of inoSust®, Evonik’s sustainability brand, aims to implement harmonized and credible sustainability reporting standards in the animal protein sector and help customers reduce the environmental impact of their production systems.
