Dairy multinational Royal FrieslandCampina is aiming to achieve climate-neutral growth throughout the dairy chain over the coming years. Sustainability is a key element of the company’s business strategy.

In its 2009 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, FrieslandCampina outlines its CSR ambitions, policy, related activities and the results achieved in the first year following the merger between Friesland Foods and Campina at the end of 2008.

FrieslandCampina has defined five sustainability themes in which it can make a tangible contribution to this goal: FrieslandCampina in society, Nutrition & Health, Care for the environment, Dedicated employees and Sustainable agriculture. The policy and programmes it has built around these themes are aimed at contributing to economic progress while restricting the environmental impact of its business operations, offering healthy products, encouraging the development of employees and supporting the local communities in which it is active.

“We are working within the context of our route2020 strategy to achieve climate-neutral growth throughout the dairy chain. We want to do so by working with our member farmers and partners to improve energy efficiency, reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and boost the production of renewable energy on our dairy farms. Sustainability is thus a key prerequisite in the realisation of our business strategy,” says Cees ’t Hart, chief executive of Royal FrieslandCampina.
