The Innovation Center for US Dairy has unveiled the “Net Zero Initiative,” an industry-wide effort that will help US dairy farms of all sizes and geographies implement new technologies and adopt economically viable practices.
The initiative is a critical component of US dairy’s environmental stewardship goals, endorsed by dairy industry leaders and farmers, to achieve carbon neutrality, optimized water usage and improved water quality by 2050.
The Innovation Center for US Dairy also announced a key milestone on its journey toward carbon neutrality – an up to $10 million commitment and multi-year partnership with Nestlé to support the Net Zero Initiative and scale access to environmental practices and resources on farms across the country.
The Net Zero Initiative is a collaboration of dairy organizations and represents a critical pathway on US dairy’s sustainability journey.
