Life cycle approach
Life cycle approach - means taking all steps from cow to consumer into our focus areas when working with environmental targets. It also means taking the entire life cycle of our products, from raw materials to disposal, into our calculations.
Focus on farm
Focus on farm - our environmental strategy 2020 includes dairy farms' environmental footprint. Through demonstration farms and workshops we will involve our farmers in finding more sustainable dairy farming solutions. Read more about our plans for sustainable agricultureIncrease efficiency - since the 90's we have constantly reduced water and energy consumption in our production and in our transportation. This work will continue through our environmental management system: Plan-do-check-act.
Transparency - means inviting all interested stakeholders to follow our progress on environmental improvements. We frequently publish our milestones and results on our website and we give access to key figures such as reductions in carbon footprint and in water and energy consumption.
Stakeholder Involvement - this means involving both colleagues, farmers and external stakeholders in the many projects leading to a more sustainable dairy production.An internal campaign engages colleagues in finding new and better ways of working that will have a positive impact on the environment.
We cooperate with a wide range of external stakeholders:
- Industry organisations
- Civil society
Our aim is to share and develop best practices and new solutions e.g. new packaging materials, standards for carbon footprint, knowledge within cow feed efficiency.
