- In 2020 we defined our global roadmap to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The phased approach aims to halve our emissions by 2030 and realize net zero by 2050. To accomplish this, we will accelerate current initiatives, evolve our operations, and uncover ways to balance remaining emissions through high-quality carbon removal projects or innovation.
- We were the first corporate partner to join the Net Zero Initiative, an industry-wide effort that will play a key role in helping U.S. dairy to make progress toward greenhouse gas emissions reductions and significant improvements in water usage from field to farmgate through innovative technologies and practices.
- We assert our commitment to #WeAreStillIn to support climate action to meet the commitments set forth by the Paris Accord and have joined with other members of the business community to support regulation to reduce greenhouse gases, such as the Clean Power Plan.
