This article focuses on the Dutch dairy sector, which has undergone several policy changes since the milk quota abolition in 2015 (McCullough, 2018). For instance, phosphate emission rights were implemented in 2018 using a system of grandfathering, which allocates rights based on past production levels. More recently, the so called ‘nitrogen crisis’ emerged (Erisman, 2021). The Netherlands has committed itself to critical deposition values set by the European Union (EU). Meeting these deposition values requires far-reaching measures to reduce nitrogen emissions. For example, permits for the emission of nitrogen are required.
