A new Bulletin on eco-friendly and energy-saving dairy technologies is already available on IDF’s corporate website. The purpose of these guidelines is to assist sustainability managers and leaders in improving energy management across the dairy supply chain.
To date, evolving energy conserving measures have been incorporated in virtually all traditional unit processes deployed in dairy processes without compromising food safety and security. Moreover, post-farm dairy processing makes relatively little demands of energy in the context of overall global use. This is an example of how the sector’s commitment to sustainability is supported by concrete, actual measures.
“Sustainability is one of the four pillars of IDF, and thus we are determined to develop and promote sustainable practices across the dairy supply chain,” says Caroline Emond, Director General of IDF. “As part of this determination, we have decided to actively contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including SDG7. “This is not just an expression of goodwill, but an irrevocable commitment. Eco-friendly practices and energy-saving technologies are very much aligned with this goal”, she concludes.
