Pathways to Dairy Net Zero

The global dairy community is coming together to accelerate climate action and help reduce the sector’s impact on the planet. This is a vibrant, growing movement, the first of its kind in the world. It brings together dairy farms of every size and type, as well as organizations throughout the dairy supply chain. No matter where you are or how you contribute to the dairy production system, there is a pathway for you towards Dairy Net Zero. Join us to raise dairy’s climate ambition. Together we will amplify the efforts and initiatives already in place and support action to reduce dairy’s emissions over the next 30 years.
By optimizing productivity and reducing emissions, our efforts today will safeguard nutrition security and sustain a billion livelihoods for tomorrow, while helping secure a future for us all.
