Baloise Bank SoBa supports international conference on sustainable animal husbandry

Basel, June 26, 2019. Baloise Bank SoBa is donating CHF10,000 to the International Conference on Production Diseases in Farm Animals. The ICPD takes place every three years, alternating between Europe and North America. This year, the 17th ICPD will be hosted in Switzerland by scientists from the Vetsuisse faculty of the University of Bern from 27 to 29 June 2019.

Sustainability is very important to Baloise – that is why we are supporting this conference. Not least to build a bridge between the research community and the general interest of the Swiss population in sustainable milk, meat and egg production that takes animal welfare and animal health into account,” says Michael Katzlberger, Head of Sales, Private Banking, at Baloise Bank SoBa. The overall goal of the conference is to contribute to healthy and sustainable animal-derived food production. Lectures by experts from around the world will cover livestock farming, physiology, genetics, nutrition, welfare and herd health management, and explore how these disciplines interact.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything that Baloise does. Because every day it helps communities, companies and economies to function properly. Through its efforts, the Company aims to take responsibility for sustainable development. Not only with regard to its own business areas and immediate spheres of influence, such as risk management, investment and employee development, but also beyond them. Baloise is committed to supporting areas outside the Company through its research for the future in order to boost the achievement of all 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. That is why Baloise Bank SoBa donates resources to sectors that are essential to accomplishing this, including food production.
