The Netherlands: Royal FrieslandCampina works on new system for Foqus planet sustainability programme

The Holland headquartered dairy cooperative Royal FrieslandCampina is working on a new system for the Foqus planet sustainability programme. To accelerate sustainability, efforts on the farm will be rewarded in a more targeted way and each farm can pick and choose in which themes it wants to excel. The renewed system will make it possible for the cooperative and the company to determine which sustainability goals should be the focus in a given period. Currently, climate is an important theme for acceleration. Therefore, the proposal is to reward dairy farmers additionally on sustainability results achieved in the field of climate-related indicators. Dairy farmers can earn an amount of up to 1.50 euros per 100 kilogram of milk, depending on the improvement in lowering greenhouse gas emissions. The board’s proposal will be discussed with members.
