ISS Commits to Cage-free Eggs

EMEA, Americas, APAC, Service Provider News
ISS has made a global commitment to sourcing eggs produced by cage-free hens by 2025 as part of a group-wide initiative to support sustainable agriculture, forestry, fishing and aquaculture under the United Nation's Global Compact.

 

The global facilities management and foodservices provider has also announced it is working with The Humane League (an NGO campaigning for the end of animal abuse in farming), and free-range chicken farming coallition, the Open Wing Alliance, to help improve animal welfare standards.
      

Commenting on both announcement, Joseph Nazareth, Group Head of Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) and Corporate Responsibility at ISS, said:
 
"We believe in conducting business in a sustainable manner as sustainability is the foundation of future growth, and we aim to lead our industry by example.
 
 
"Within the environment we operate, we aim to positively influence the market, and this is particularly important given the global scale of the organisation. It is a key focus for ISS to improve the welfare and farming of animals. We have made considerable progress within this area and have made another step in our journey to improve the welfare and farming of all animals and the products being used in our supply chain."  
 

European Corporate Relations Coordinator for The Humane League, Alex Suchy, said:
 
"We applaud ISS’s decision to eradicate cages from its supply chains, joining the ranks of a wave of companies moving towards more compassionate systems for hens.
 
 
"The global cage-free movement is continuing to escalate and, with companies like ISS taking this important step, we are confident that soon caging hens will be a thing of the past."
