Sustainable Development Goals

At Bioinsectis, we have incorporated some of the SDGs outlined by the UN General Assembly into our corporate culture and are working to include more.

We currently comply with the following SDGs:

We are aware of the need for a profound change in the agri-food system towards sustainable food. In this sense, we see the need to replace conventional chemical pesticides with sustainable products that benefit people’s health by increasing crop productivity.

At Bioinsectis we are committed to the full and effective participation of women in the company and to an optimum work-life balance.
