Combatting the Carbon Challenge
The Dairy Council for Northern Ireland has published the second annual EU Sustainable Dairy Fact Book, in conjunction with the EU and the European Milk Forum.
The publication for 2019 focuses on the Carbon Footprint of the Northern Ireland Dairy sector, and the proactive approach the sector is taking to lower emissions and mitigate against climate change.
The fact book showcases the cutting edge research on carbon sequestration being carried out at the Agri–Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI) and shines a light on the investments and measures taken by local farmers to lower their carbon footprint by investing in renewable energy and making other efficiency measures.
It also displays the investment by Northern Ireland dairy processors to reduce their emissions, and demonstrates the positive impact that innovation and effective management is having in reducing the dairy sector’s carbon footprint.
