Sustainable Development Goals

AUGA group is committed to sustainable farming and organic food production business. To us, it means the alignment of our sustainability approach and our actions. By implementing sustainability principles in our daily activities, with the help of new technologies, we gain the best industry know-how and experience.
With our activities, we contribute to the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which are in line with AUGA group’s vision and values.

Sustainable farming methods

Today AUGA group’s sustainable farming model relies on the following three main practices. The closed-loop organic farming model aims to achieve synergies among different branches of agriculture and maximise the re-use of organic waste. Min-till technology is applied on 99% of the cultivated agricultural land, helping to prevent soil from erosion, protect biodiversity, and reduce fuel consumption, resulting in lower GHG emissions. Certified green energy produced from renewable sources and accounting for zero green-house gas emissions is used in all of production and administrative facilities.

Strategic projects

The main objectives of AUGA group‘s innovation agenda by 2025 are to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% from fossil fuel use on farms and per milk production unit, and by 30% from agricultural dry matter yield per tonne. The total emissions reduction target for the company is 27%.
This target will be achieved by implementing the following strategic projects:
1. Biogas cycle infrastructure to enable farm operations to run without fossil fuels, and manure will be utilised both for fertilisation, as well as for powering farm operations as biofuel.
2. Specialised feed technology to reduce methane emissions from ruminant.
3. Regenerative crop-rotation to substitute the share of cereal cultures with leguminous grasses that demonstrate carbon sequestration and nitrogen fixation capabilities.
