Sustainable Development Goals
Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Industrialization and a thriving environment do not have to be mutually exclusive. By developing our insect production we are innovating existing waste-management infrastructures. Directly investing in the sustainable future of nutrient-cycling to create a truly circular economy. This is genuine sustainable innovation.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
By using existing foodwaste rather than new resources, production of our insect-based protein side-steps the bulk of conventional input-related emissions. In addition, we circumvent existing energy-intensive processing of foodwaste, cutting emissions even further.
Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Many cities and municipality manage their waste streams independently, each of which constitutes a rich source of nutrients for our insects. With our decentralized satellite-based production model, these cities and municipalities can become part of a circular economy in which their waste streams are converted by our insects and reintroduced in their local food market.
Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources
Insect-based protein offers an affordable alternative to fishmeal-based feed used in aquaculture industries. In this way, we can reduce the pressure on our oceans and seas.
Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
Through our insects, sustainable consumption and production become at once intertwined and attainable.
As waste-streams become resource-streams, boundaries blur and a truly circular economy is created where valuable nutrients are neither wasted nor lost.
Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss
By using foodwaste to produce insect-based protein, we pre-empt using valuable agricultural land and water. Reduced need for these resources decreases pressure on forests and fragile ecosystems onto which agricultural land continues to expand. Land currently under cultivation for soy or corn-based animal feed could be reforested, or reallocated to growing food for direct human consumption, ensuring global food security.
