Taking action for a better future

Our planet is facing a climate challenge. Farming and dairy carries a responsibility, but also a great opportunity to contribute positively and help solve that challenge. At Arla we want to be part of the solution.

Rewarding farmers for climate activities

From August 2023, Arla farmers who are taking action to reduce their carbon footprint will be rewarded through a new Sustainability Incentive model.

Together with our farmer owners, we’ve committed to reducing on-farm CO2e emissions per kilo milk by 30 per cent by 2030. Rewarding farmers for their climate activities is an important milestone towards accelerating CO2e reductions on farm. 

In total, 500 million euro will be earmarked to motivating and rewarding Arla farmers for their climate action (based on our current milk pool).

Committed to limiting global warming to 1.5°C

In December 2021, we doubled our climate target for operations including owned logistics from 30 to 63 per cent. This target has been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative as consistent with reductions required in scopes 1 and 2 to keep global warming to 1.5°C. The most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement.

Data-driven climate action

Arla farmers are working hard on making dairy more sustainable. They are already on the way to reducing the carbon footprint per kilo milk by 30% by 2030*.

To support them on the journey, we've created the world’s largest externally validated climate data sets from dairy farms to help our farmer owners become as climate efficient as possible.

Let's talk about dairy

Is milk good for you? What are the benefits of milk? What is lactose-free milk? Can you drink too much milk?
