Ep. 56: How Companies Are Taking Action on Climate
Show Notes

From reducing methane emissions to implementing recyclable packaging, U.S. dairy is making environmental sustainability a priority. In the latest episode of The Dairy Download, our guests shed light on innovative ways dairy companies are leading on climate action.

First up is Britt Lundgren, Senior Director of Sustainability and Government Affairs at Stonyfield Organic. With funding from a USDA’s Climate-Smart Commodities grant, Stonyfield is taking steps to reduce emissions and shift to bio-based and recycled packaging. How is the company leveraging supply chain partnerships to meet those goals? What other promising opportunities does Stonyfield see in the next five to 10 years? Lundgren shares her insights.

Next, we speak with Chris Adamo, Vice President of Public Affairs and Regenerative Agriculture Policy for Danone North America. Earlier this year, Danone unveiled ambitious plans to cut methane emissions by 30% by 2030. How are tools like feed additives and digesters moving the ball forward? How are Danone’s producers embracing the movement toward sustainability? Adamo weighs in.
