As a dairy, it is our responsibility to do what we can to reduce global warming, Anna-Karin Karlsson, sustainability director, says about Norrmejerier’s new international commitment with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
– Climate change affects everyone. To secure the future of future generations, action is required at all levels of society. Our business includes everything from agriculture and production to cold storage and transport. By setting science-based climate goals, Norrmejerier can work even more systematically with sustainability, Anna-Karin Karlsson sustainability director at Norrmejerier says in a press release.
To reduce climate impact, Norrmejerier now commits itself to the Paris Agreement’s goal of keeping global warming well below 2 degrees. The commitment takes place within the framework of the international collaboration Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and has been signed by CEO Anders Fredriksson (photo). The next step will be to set future science-based climate goals, which will be reviewed and approved by SBTi.
The dairy company has previously implemented a number of measures to reduce its carbon footprint. The energy supply at the dairies is 99 percent renewable. At the same time co-distribution and a higher proportion of climate-smart fuels have contributed to reducing the emissions. Norrmejerier have plans to invest ten million kronor over five years for a climate change.
