A Message from our Chief Sustainability Officer
Let me start by wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year. I am proud of the work we accomplished in 2019, the progress we have made on our sustainability journey and our efforts to reach some of our most ambitious goals.
I am excited about the new year and the start of a new decade. I’m certain we can expect it to bring many new challenges and opportunities for our company to grow and thrive, particularly as it relates to sustainability.
I am pleased to begin 2020 with the latest issue of the OSI Sustainability Newsletter, which features some of OSI’s most compelling stories yet. In this newsletter, you will learn about many of the things we are doing to address one of the most critical components of our sustainability journey: the environment.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have been affected by the bushfires in Australia as well as those suffering under droughts and extreme temperatures. It is no secret that climate change is presenting new challenges for our industry as we work to feed a growing global population. This means the need for reducing our environmental impact and being good stewards of our planet is more important than ever.
There are also stories in this issue that talk about what it means to work safety and grow a career as part of the OSI family. We’re celebrating some of the achievements of our facilities from last year and the efforts the company makes to ensure workplace health and safety remains a top priority.
The hard work we continue to do at OSI will ensure our business thrives, our people are healthy and fulfilled and the environment and animals are being treated well. I know 2020 is going to be another incredible year for us. I look forward to seeing what we accomplish.
P.S. Did you know that most of the newsletter stories and others can be found on the
