At Arla we don’t do things by halves. Our farmer owners have some of the most stretching environmental and welfare standards in the world. That’s because they own the cooperative, and so they set high standards to show how much they care.
Working with targets approved by approved by the Science Based Target Initiative and aligned with the Paris Agreement, the first step to reach our carbon net zero targets is to reduce our collective emissions by 30 per cent by 2030, and that includes counting the emissions from the cows and their calves! To start this journey, over 90 per cent of our farmers have undertaken a climate check on their farm. This means they better understand their farms carbon footprint and which areas they should start improving first.
