Dairy farming

Dairy farming

Relevant for dairy farming as it both makes a net contribution to CO2 emissions and is influenced by more extreme weather events as a result of climate change.

Climate change

Climate change

Carbon dioxide levels in the air are at their highest level in 650,000 years and we have seen 19 of the warmest years since 2000. Low-carbon dairy will be discussed at the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow in 2021. Companies are increasingly committed to programs to reduce CO2 emissions.
