The Environmental Defense Fund has announced the creation of the Dairy Methane Action Alliance with food industry companies to reduce emissions on farms.
Katie Anderson is the senior director for EDF.
“The Alliance’s founding members include some of the biggest companies in the dairy sector, including Bel Group, Danone, Kraft Heinz, Lactalis USA. and Nestle,” she says. “Together, they’re going to set a new benchmark for transparency, accountability, ambition, and action within the food industry.”
The companies are committing to measure and publicly disclose their methane emissions along with an action plan to reduce methane emissions by the end of next year.
