Life Cycle Assessment


In partnership with the Egg Industry Center and United Egg Producers, AEB launched an Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) evaluation in July to measure the environmental footprint of U.S. egg production and to quantify how egg farmers are producing a sustainable protein offering value and balanced nutrition.


The first LCA demonstrated how genetics, supported by improved nutrition, housing, management and disease control in the egg industry reduced the environmental footprint over a 50 year period from 1960 to 2010. The update of the LCA now in progress will reflect the changes in egg production during the past ten years. Producers are urged to cooperate in providing information to assist the compilers of the LCA.
