The pig sector works to achieve an efficient, effective and sustainable model integrally under the prism of the three axes or pillars essential for their survival and viability: economy, social and environmental. Isbran, beyond existing standards and compliance, has opted for animal innovation, efficiency and well-being through clean energy and innovative technologies such as Puritermia
The porcino sector is an essential reference in the Spanish agricultural field that dynamizes the economic, demographic, social and territorial territory, thus demonstrating its data for another year that has improved and exceeded the record figures. In 2021, this sector employed, according to Interporc in Spain directly or indirectly, more than 415. 000 people and made 62% of the total meat industry and 18% of the food industry. Undoubtedly, a consolidated and stable sector that, despite the uncertainties of the geopolitical juncture, is committed to being leaders in export, sustainability, food security and well-being.
The Animal Welfare is a priority to ensure sustainability on the farm, farms must offer the best possible hygienic, food and environmental conditions for animals. It is a multidimensional issue that has long given rise to growing interest on the part of civil society and is a priority for the OIE. The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) defines the Animal Welfare as “the physical and mental state of an animal in relation to the conditions in which it lives and dies.” The OIE developed a Global Strategy Animal Welfare In 2017, this strategy was adopted by all countries and its object is to “locate a world in which animal welfare is respected, promoted and advanced, so that it complements the search for animal health, human well-being, socio-economic development and environmental sustainability”. According to Bruno Jiménez, Managing Director ISBRAN, “The Animal Welfare is key to achieving efficient, respectful, profitable exploitation and demands commitment and determined commitment.”
In ISBRAN, says Bruno Jiménez, “we are aware of the need for sustainability and sustainable development from the beginning, so our commitment and innovation is towards: Geotermiaa renewable, competitive, highly efficient and inexhaustible energy obtained through the use of heat through the use of the heat of the subsoil and towards innovation in technologies focused on the principles of sustainability, biodiversity that minimize the environmental impact.” Noticias de la Sierra de Cadiz
The benefits of this heat capture are unquestionable both for society and for exploitation. Among its main benefits are: energy savings of almost 80% of the energy bill; reduction of carbon footprint, a lower energy dependence by hiring less fixed power; environmental sustainability, is estimated according to the emissions record a PRTR a reduction of almost 70% and finally, but not less relevant greater animal welfare in the interior of the ships, By reducing emissions, animals breathe a better air, this fact is that their level of environmental stress descends, the fights between animals are less and live in better weather conditions regardless of the time of the year.
Compliance with the sustainability strategy in all its aspects, economic, social and environmental is more than a need in the current farms and has added value and ethical value, which is aimed at responding to an increasingly conscious society on this issue. The porcine sector works to achieve an efficient, effective and sustainable model integrally under the prism of the three axes or pillars essential for their survival and viability; in terms of social and economic pillars, production systems seek to be profitable to ensure their efficiency and, from the environmental point of view, the excellence of animals, environments and workers is not questionable. Guidelines, recommendations and campaigns at the European and national levels are sensitive and revolve around these parameters. Thus, the Commission on Agriculture and Rural Development of the European Parliament is currently preparing a report to request the European Commission for a legislative proposal on animal welfare.
Given the ethical dimension of Animal Welfare, It is essential to have updated regulations and legislation in this area so that citizens have clear, understandable and accessible information about existing standards and compliance with regulations Animal Welfare.
ISBRAN: Spanish pioneer in geothermal energy dedicated to the porcine sector, and specialized in providing air conditioning systems to maternity and transition farms. ISBRAN offers an innovative solution for efficient air conditioning to the swine farms that facilitates energy consumption and comfortability for the pigs and pigs by providing less energy dependence and a great help in decarbonization for the least use of energy.
