Dairy Industry Launches Environmental Initiative

First step is to study milk production's carbon footprint.

Dairy industry leaders are launching "a comprehensive sustainability initiative" to encourage environmental innovations, improve environmental performance and position the industry to respond to demand from the growing consumer segment that buys with a social consciousness, according to an announcement. The first part of this initiative will be to analyze milk production's carbon footprint, the announcement said.

The initiative is being brought together by three dairy organizations - Dairy Management Inc., National Milk Producers Federation and International Dairy Foods Association - and will cover the dairy supply chain from producers, processors and manufacturers to distributors and retailers, the announcement said.
