Dairy farmers who supply Robert Wiseman Dairies are being offered expert help to reduce their energy costs and improve their carbon footprint. All members of the Wiseman Milk Group not aligned to a retailer supply group are being given the chance to have an E-C02 carbon and energy audit giving a carbon score for their business and identifying potential savings that could be made by reducing electricity and water usage.

Over 250 members have already taken up the offer of a fully funded audit which allows Wiseman farms to meet the recommendation of the Milk Roadmap for all farms to measure the carbon footprint of their enterprise.

Pete Nicholson, milk procurement director at Robert Wiseman Dairies, comments:

“We take our commitment to ensuring the long term sustainability of the UK dairy industry very seriously. This goes beyond simply reducing the impact of our own operations and looking at the entire supply chain from the cow to the consumer. This project allows us to work with our contracted producers and industry experts to measure and identify opportunities to reduce the environmental impact up to the farm gate.”

Robert Wiseman Dairies procures, processes and distributes almost a third of all fresh milk consumed in Britain, every day. Founded in East Kilbride in 1947 and listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1994, the company operates seven dairies and 15 distribution depots in Britain, and employs more than 4,800 staff.
