A key focus for IMPETUS is in Asian abattoirs (facilities where animals are slaughtered for meat production).

Abattoirs can pose a significant risk to animal welfare if proper handling and slaughter practices are not followed. The nature of the work makes these highly important but highly neglected space for animal welfare improvements in Asia.

We explore novel investments with the focus on programs that can be run commercially and scale their impact for animal welfare in the region.
