The first sustainability assessment tool for Canadian egg farmers
Welcome to the National Environmental Sustainability and Technology Tool (NESTT), an innovative sustainability assessment tool developed specifically for Canadian egg farmers.
The first tool of its kind, NESTT is one of the ways egg farmers are improving environmental outcomes and leading in sustainability.
Let’s lead the way to a sustainable future together
By completing an assessment in NESTT and anonymously submitting your data for every flock, you’re directly contributing to advancing our broader sustainability goals. This allows us all to continue to advance our sustainability journey, together.
I was able to use NESTT to determine my baseline environmental footprint and it gives me resources to help improve my farm's carbon footprint. This will become useful as I make changes to production practices whether it is housing or adding energy-efficient products to our farm.

Inputting the data is pretty easy and straight forward. Overall, it is not too much effort to complete the assessment. There’s a lot of value in the peer-to-peer comparisons.

NESTT is fairly easy to use. The results and feedback from the tool were easy to read and understand. Going solar is on our farms list of goals to accomplish over the next five years, so good to see that our goals align with other sustainability goals.
