Danone Sets 2030 Goals

Danone, a food and dairy company, announces a global action plan to reduce methane emissions from its fresh milk supply chain by 30% by 2030.

The company expects to remove 1.2 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent of methane emissions by 2030, according to an announcement. This plan builds on the progress Danone has been making in recent years, already reducing its methane emissions by 14% between 2018 to 2020.

Dairy production from cattle makes up an estimated 8% of total human-caused methane emissions as part of agriculture and livestock activities which represent approximately 40% of global methane emissions.

Danone will reduce methane emissions by focusing on working with farmers to implement regenerative dairy practices and develop innovative solutions, collaborating and partnering with peers, governments and Environmental Defense Fund to scale innovation, reporting and advance financing models and advocating and engaging with governments to improve methane policies, data and reporting as well as funding for research and to support farmers transitioning to regenerative dairy practices.
