Sustainable Development Goals
SOP supports the United Nations Global Compact initiative (founded to encourage companies all over the world to adopt sustainable politics with regards to corporate social responsibility) and is actively committed to the realization of the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and to allow its customers to do the same.
SDG 1. NO POVERTY: SOP helps its customers to improve production by reducing costs for fertilization, raw materials and energy, thus giving the opportunity to improve the farm turnover.
SDG 2. ZERO HUNGER: The use of the SOP products allows an improvement in farm production (milk, meat, cereals, corn, rice...), offering more and better quality food.
SDG 3. HEALTH & WELLBEING: The use of the SOP products allows a drastic reduction in ammonia emissions (precursor of PM2.5) from the fields, barn and liquid manure.
This contributes to the improvement of the air quality in the surrounding environment.
SDG 4. QUALITY EDUCATION: Our customers are committed to divulging their good sustainability practices, supported by the use of the SOP products, by training their employees, organizing visits to their farms, with online testimonials and conferences.
SDG 5. GENDER EQUALITY: The SOP products, by reducing odor and ammonia, help to create a better working environment for all the farm workers.
SDG 6. CLEAN WATER & SANITATION: Thanks to our liquid manure treatment and the reduction of synthetic fertilization obtainable by using the SOP products, our customers are able to avoid nitrate contamination of the ground waters.
SDG 7. AFFORDABLE & CLEAN ENERGY: The use of the SOP products allows a reduction in the energy required for liquid manure agitation and transportation, rendering these operations more efficient. The reduction/elimination of synthetic fertilizers means that there will be a reduction in the energy required for their production, delivery and distribution (LCA).
SDG 8. DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH: The SOP products allow a reduction in costs for medicines, fertilizers and energy and render the productive processes more efficient, improving the farm turnover.
SDG 9. INDUSTRY INNOVATION & INFRASTRUCTURE: Farms already invest a lot in the improvement of communication between the barn and the fields; the reduction of ammonia in the barn, due to the use of the SOP products, means less degradation of farm structures.
SDG 10. REDUCED INEQUALITIES: Farms are places of inclusion, employing workers from all over the world. The reduction of odor and ammonia in the barn creates a better working environment for the farm workers during all their activities.
SDG 11. SUSTAINABLE CITIES & COMMUNITIES: The SOP products help to reduce odor and ammonia from the barn and liquid manure, greatly limiting the impact of the farm activities on the surrounding community and contributing to the improvement of the air quality in general.
SDG 12. RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION & PRODUCTION: The SOP products allow our customers to make their production systems more efficient, reducing the use of synthetic fertilizers in the field and increasing the production of milk or meat whilst maintaining the same levels of feed consumption.
SDG 13. CLIMATE ACTION: The use of the SOP products helps avoid emissions of Greenhouse gases from the fields (reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers), from the barn (mitigating emissions from enteric fermentation within the animals) and from the liquid manure, in storage and in spreading.
SDG 14. LIFE BELOW WATER: The significant reduction of ammonia emissions obtained by using the SOP products, means that the farm's impact on the acidification of the ground waters can be reduced.
SDG 15. LIFE ON LAND: The use of the SOP products helps reduce the ammonia emissions and the use of synthetic fertilizers, mitigating the farm's impact on the soil, limiting its acidification and pollution from nitrates and promoting fertility.
SDG 16. PEACE, JUSTICE & STRONG INSTITUTIONS: The reduction of odor and ammonia in the barn and from the fields, obtained by using the SOP products, limits bad smells in the surrounding community, often a source of great tension.
SDG 17. PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS: With the help of the SOP products, our customers can promote their own good sustainability practices with institutions, the press and with other participants in the food supply chain.
