UK Dairy Sector Responds to Carbon Footprinting Challenge

The first UK sector specific guidance for calculating the carbon footprint of all dairy products has been launched. Developed by Dairy UK, DairyCo and the Carbon Trust in collaboration with industry, the guidelines will be used by dairy processing companies to help them measure carbon emissions across their supply chain. As well as ensuring a consistent industry-wide approach to carbon footprinting the guidelines are designed to help those involved at every stage of production to understand the importance of carbon footprint measurement and explain how it is done in a clear and accessible way.

“Dairy products such as milk, cheese and yoghurt are found in the homes and shopping baskets of most UK consumers, so by working to reduce their carbon impact we can make a real difference,” says Euan Murray, head of footprinting at the Carbon Trust. “We are pleased to have helped Dairy UK and DairyCo develop sector specific guidance on carbon footprinting.”
