Foundation Earth welcomes Royal DSM, a global purpose-led science-based company, to its pool of Life Cycle Assessment experts. Within the new partnership DSM will undertake LCAs for businesses under the Foundation Earth method, bringing expertise on the assessment of animal protein such as eggs, milk, fish and meat.

The agreement means that agri-food companies joining Foundation Earth to label their products can now access DSM’s Sustell™ service. Developed by DSM with Blonk Sustainability, Sustell™ is a first-of-its-kind intelligent sustainability service that delivers accurate, simple, and actionable farm-level solutions to improve animal protein production’s environmental footprint and profitability. By catalysing sustainable value chains and enabling environmental transparency, the service helps producers achieve their sustainability commitments.

“At Foundation Earth we are always looking to extend our knowledge by partnering with diverse experts in the food sector. We are excited to join forces with DSM, who will allow us to scale our work and bring further expertise on Life Cycle Assessments for protein under the Foundation Earth method,” said Cliona Howie, CEO at Foundation Earth.

“I firmly believe that nutrition and sustainability information are essential for consumers to make informed decisions. Primary, farm-level data is key to enabling all the players in the animal protein value chain to unlock new market opportunities and create a race to the top in terms of sustainability. SustellTM makes it possible,”  Ivo Lansbergen, Executive Vice President of Animal Nutrition and Health at DSM.
