    FrieslandCampina and Mondelēz International have announced a four-year agreement aiming to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of milk supplied by FrieslandCampina’s member dairy farmers by around 14 percent in 2025 compared to 2019.

    The milk is among others used as an ingredient for the production of Mondelēz’s chocolate and biscuit products in Europe.

    “Together with our member dairy farmers, we are working towards producing net climate-neutral dairy by 2050 at the latest,” Sanne Griffioen-Roose, director farm sustainability at FrieslandCampina, said.

    “FrieslandCampina’s approach is to measure, act and monitor. We are excited to partner with Mondelēz International, because by collaborating with them we can reward our farmers for their hard work and realised greenhouse gas reductions while also investing in programmes to continuously improve sustainability at the farms.”

    Vanessa Harrer, senior director marketing and sustainability at Mondelēz Europe, added: “Dairy ingredients are important components for our well-known chocolate, biscuit and cheese brands, such as Milka, Cadbury Dairy Milk and Philadelphia and play a role in our sustainability strategy, which was recently named the company’s fourth strategic pillar.

    “Therefore, we are proud to invest in a strong partnership in Europe to work closely with our dairy supplier FrieslandCampina, encouraging and supporting their initiatives to measure greenhouse gas reductions and take action to reduce, track and report carbon emissions.”

    The collaboration not only aims to help accelerate existing efforts to reduce carbon emissions in the dairy supply chain, but is also expected to inspire other companies to join and share best practices.
