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 have set a target of net zero emissions for our operations by 2050, because tackling climate change is a critical issue and we are committed to doing our part to help New Zealand meet its international climate commitments.
Today, roughly a third of our sites rely on coal as their main source of energy. Making the change away from coal isn’t as simple as flicking a switch. In the South Island, for example, there are no gas or feasible alternatives available and so we rely on the use of coal in our plants to process our farmers milk.
