ABP has grown into an international business but we never forget our roots. Find out where we’re coming from, as a business and as people.
ABP’s vision is simple. To be the best at everything we do. Being a market leader comes with responsibilities. You also have to lead on quality, traceability and sustainability.
It’s our responsibility as leaders in the market to show the way, and encourage our entire industry to follow a sustainable path.
This is ABP’s Advantage Beef Programme, a dynamic new enterprise partnership that helps farmers build a sustainable beef business.
As part of ABP Food Group, it’s our responsibility to be part of the development of a more sustainable path for the agricultural sector. Our environmental goals are firmly rooted in science-based targets and independently verified. In Ireland, we have a longstanding partnership with Origin Green as a founding member and have progressed to achieve Gold Membership status.

ABP Sustainability Story
It’s absolutely essential for our business to continue making strides. Our science-based targets for emissions reductions are aligned with the targets set out in the Paris Climate Agreement. Science-based targets are an internationally recognised standard for emissions reductions. We have conducted a thorough analysis of the emissions that occur across our entire supply chain to identify areas of focus. As a group, we are playing our part to help deliver on the global agenda for climate action.
We’ve made significant investment across the board to improve the sustainability of our operations. Science-based targets keep us on track towards reducing our emissions. We make sure our aims are achievable as well as ambitious. In Ireland, we continue to raise sustainability standards through our Origin Green Gold Membership. All our processing sites in Ireland now run on wind energy. We’re also committed to constantly improving our animal welfare, becoming more efficient with our resources, and continuing to think ahead as much as possible.
The natural environment ensures the quality of our produce. So we work closely with over 12,000 farmers on family farms to protect that advantage, while keeping our environmental impact as low as we can.
Through innovation, reducing emissions and actively protecting our natural ecosystems, we are leading the way in helping to ensure a cleaner future for all. Find out more about how ABP promotes sustainability below.
