In Ireland the biggest dairy cooperative Glanbia has launched an 18 million euro annual sustainability action payment as part of a three-year programme to assist its 5000 milk supplying dairy farms to enhance the environmental and economic sustainability of their farms. The programme is designed to assist dairy suppliers in reducing their carbon footprint, enhancing water quality and biodiversity and improving air quality and soil health in line with Glanbia sustainability strategy, Living Proof. As part of Living Proof, Glanbia, along with its member farms, has pledged to deliver a 30 percent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with each litre of milk produced by 2030. As part of this initiative, dairy suppliers will receive 0.5 cent per litre (including VAT) through delivering specific sustainability actions. This will equate to almost 3000 euro in 2022 for the average supplier. Across the lifetime of this three-year programme, over 54 million euro in total will be made available to farms as they continue to adopt a range of actions.
