Our milk tankers travel over 100 million km per year, collect milk from a farm every nine seconds, deliver that milk to a factory every 24 seconds and we close the doors on a shipping container of product every three minutes. Product that goes to millions of consumers in more than 100 countries around the world.
We aspire to be Net Zero by 2050 and are working to exit coal at the remaining six out of 29 sites where it is still used, by 2037.
We’ve made good gains with our move away from coal at our Te Awamutu, Stirling and Brightwater sites and have current conversions underway at Waitoa and Hautapu. We’re currently investigating a range of options that could be deployed where we still use coal – hot water heat pumps, steam heat pumps, biomass conversions including with black pellets and electrode boilers.
In its first year of operation, the Te Awamutu conversion to wood pellets reduced our emissions from coal by 11%.
