Farmer-owned dairy co-operative, Arla is pledging its commitment to a new ground-breaking initiative together with other global businesses in the dairy industry to reduce greenhouse (GHG) emissions over the next 30 years. The initiative is called Pathways to Dairy Net Zero and is unlike any other climate effort in agriculture in terms of size, breadth, and scope and is supported by leading scientific and research organizations.

Pathways to Dairy Net Zero seeks to identify new opportunities for the dairy industry to take positive cli-mate action. As part of the initiative, it will be spearheading new research which will help to guide on di-rection and inform on different methodologies, tools and pathways to achieve Dairy Net Zero.

Said Peder Tuborgh, CEO, Arla: “Dairy plays a vital part of creating sustainable food systems across the globe, ensuring high quality nutrition for all, but it’s essential the whole industry works together to accelerate climate action. We are incredibly proud that Arla is demonstrating its clear commitment to reducing climate change by signing up to this important initiative. The Dairy Net Zero declaration pledges our continued investment and research into innovative ways to reduce greenhouse emissions both on farm and throughout the supply chain. The Pathways to Dairy Net Zero directly supports Arla’s journey and will amplify the efforts and initiatives we already have in place to accelerate climate action in the dairy industry.” For more visit arla.com
