Dairy farmers help to slow climate change: carbon farmers store carbon dioxide in soil
Dairy farmers help to slow climate change by storing carbon dioxide in soil. There are many ways to do that, and some of them are very traditional.
Carbon footprint calculations
We must have a detailed view of greenhouse gasses generated throughout dairy products’ life cycles. That way we can make significant improvements towards carbon-neutral milk.
Dairy farms can take climate action too
Biodiversity and the future of milk production are weekly discussions at the Pelto-Mattila farm in Hausjärvi.
Valio’s climate targets granted Science Based Targets certification – Valio’s goal is to reset milk’s carbon footprint to zero by 2035
In 2020, Valio set science-based targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and now, they have been accepted by the Science Based Targets initiative.* Valio is committed to limit the environmental impact of its production chain to an increase of no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius, in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement. Dairy farm greenhouse emissions are monitored with the CARBO® environmental calculator. Over 600 dairy farms have already calculated their carbon footprint as a base for emissions reductions in the future.
