Organization: Egg Farmers of Canada (EFC)

Timeline for Completion: Founded 1972 Ongoing


The planet is warming at a rate unprecedented in the past 1,300 years, and the resulting harm to humanity could be catastrophic.¹ Climate change has become one of the greatest challenges of our era and every industry has a responsibility to tackle the problem head-on.

To reduce our environmental footprint while creating jobs for this generation and the next, we need to make more for less. We need to create more products and services while using less land, less water, and fewer fossil fuels. If it sounds impossible? It is not. Greening and growing productivity can go hand-in-hand. The egg industry, after all, has been doing it for a half-century.

Over the past 50 years Canadian egg production has increased by 50% while the industry’s environmental footprint dropped by almost 50%. Our industry is leading the charge into a sustainable future.
