Burnbrae celebrates Earth Day with sustainability report, emissions commitment


To celebrate Earth Day, April 22, Burnbrae Farms has released its first sustainability report, “Eggs for Life” and has made a commitment to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

The report provides a summary of Burnbrae Farms’ sustainability objectives and progress against its five key pillars: Environment, Animal Care, Health & Wellbeing, Safe Nourishing Food, and Community Spirit.

Burnbrae Farms, a sixth-generation, Canadian family-owned and operated company, has been in operation for more than 130 years, and Margaret Hudson, company president and CEO, says Burnbrae is committed to offering safe, nutritious and affordable eggs to Canadians, while working towards a greener tomorrow for the next generation.

The net-zero carbon emissions commitment is part of the company’s ongoing work to reduce its environmental impact. The company began tracking its carbon footprint in 2016 and will continue focusing on high priority issues where it can make the greatest impact, including the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and electricity consumption.

“As the largest family-owned and operated egg business in Canada, Burnbrae Farms plays an important role in fostering positive environmental and societal change, both nationally and in the communities in which we work and serve,” says Hudson. “Our family has always had a community mindset in all that we do, and so it follows that we are committing to doing our part to protect the planet, and to continuing to innovate our operations with future sustainability projects, like the launch of our second solar farm.”
