THE INTERNATIONAL DAIRY FEDERATION (IDF) has published its first Dairy Sustainability Outlook which aims to provide a viewpoint on sustainable development for dairy. The outlook looks at ‘sustainable dairying’ taking place in different countries, an overview of some global sustainability initiatives, and some research outcomes.

IDF Director General, Ms. Caroline Emond said: “Finding new ways to reduce dairy’s impact on environment, manage resources efficiently and increase its benefits to biodiversity and bio-economy is a crucial part of the commitment of the sector for continuous improvement.”

This first IDF Dairy Sustainability Outlook aims at providing an outlook on sustainable development of relevant importance for the dairy sector. It offers an opportunity for those involved in the field to share ongoing projects and new research on sustainability of importance for the dairy sector and contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals.
