Dairy firm pledges to be carbon neutral by 2050

The biggest dairy company in Europe, has pledged to make its operation carbon neutral by 2050.

Arla Foods, based in the UK, yesterday announced its ambitious goal – read the BBC report here.

This is a great move to show that the agriculture industry is willing to start rethinking and changing its practices. However, as pointed out in the report, one of the main by-products of cattle farming is methane, which also contributes massively to climate change.

So, while a welcome and positive indicator of things starting to move in the right direction, the agriculture industry has a huge mountain to climb in the next few years.
