Dairy is part of a healthy and sustainable diet due to its nutrient density. And, as is the case for all food production, it comes with a carbon cost.
As one of the world's largest dairy cooperatives, we have a great responsibility - and at the same time a great opportunity – to do something about it.
Since 1990, our farmer owners have reduced emissions per kilo of milk by 23 per cent. Our most recent Climate Check data shows that Arla farmers are among the most climate-efficient dairy farmers in the world with 1.15 kg of CO2e per kilo of milk.
But this is just the beginning. The number is not a result – it’s a baseline for how to improve.
With help from Arla’s Climate Check tool, our farmer owners now have a clear blueprint for how they can triple the speed of CO2e reductions on their farms during this decade.
Read on to find out how.
