Sustainability is a bit of a buzzword nowadays, but for us it is at the heart of everything we do.
The UN defines sustainability as ‘meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’ and we certainly sign up to that. But you’ll also hear us talking (a lot!) about regeneration. That’s because we believe that just being sustainable doesn’t go quite far enough – we want to leave the world a better place, so for us regeneration is where we are focused.
Leading the way in regenerative farming
We are working hard to embed a regenerative mindset across our whole business, from farm to creamery to customer. We work together to produce the highest quality dairy products and we are united by a single commitment – to enrich life every day to secure the future.
To that support our aims, we’ve made some ambitious commitments, including a pledge to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2040 at the latest, with a target to reduce carbon footprint at farm level by 50% by 2030 and achieve net zero in milk transport and processing by 2035.
In addition, we’ve committed to:
- A target to sequester 100,000 tonne of CO2 per annum on members’ farms by 2025.
- A target to increase milk from forage by 10 per cent by 2025 to reduce members’ reliance on imported feeds.
- The aim for all transport and processing activity to be using renewable fuel sources by 2030.
- The intention to reduce antibiotic use by a further 10 per cent by 2025.
Proud to be a Certified B Corp
Of course, we’ve still got some way to go to be truly regenerative, but we are confident that we’re on the right track. After all, doing the right thing is at our core, and we work together every day to leave the world a better place. That’s also why we are so proud to be a Certified B Corp – part of a global community of businesses working for an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy.
