Aviagen’s Top 5 Commitments

Top 5 WheelThe United Nations has set 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The IPC has prioritized five of the SDGs – areas where the global poultry industry can make the most difference. Aviagen’s Top 5 commitments align very closely with these five SDGs.

See our Committed to Breeding Sustainability interactive presentation for a deeper understanding of how our Top 5 Commitments put into practice and align with the Top 5 IPC SDGs.
