Denmark: Arla doubles reduction goal

The Denmark headquartered dairy cooperative Arla has a new target to cut 63 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions from production, logistics and energy usage by 2030 from a 2015 base year. This is doubling the previous 30 percent reduction goal. Between 2015 and 2020 Arla has reduced its emissions from operations by 24 percent. The next steps include a transition to fossil free fuels for the full fleet of milk tankers and distribution trucks through biodiesel, biogas and electric vehicles. Also Arla aims a shift to renewable electricity and low-energy solutions across the company’s production sites and offices. The new 2030 target is consistent with reductions required to keep warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, the most ambitious goal of the Paris Agreement.
