Pledge to cut emissions from dairy farms

This article discusses a pledge to cut emissions from dairy farms.

A dairy firm is pledging to make its operations carbon-neutral from cow to supermarket by 2050, including more than 2,000 farms in the UK.

This will require “radical changes” over the coming decades, including developing new technologies, the dairy co-operative, Arla Foods, said.

It admitted the target was “ambitious”, but said it was achievable.

However, the Vegan Society said there was no way to make dairy a climate-friendly product.

Gases which help to heat the atmosphere and contribute to climate change are a by-product of the dairy industry.
