Abstract

Within the context of the Sustainable Dairy Chain initiative, dairy businesses and dairy farmers work together towards creating a futureproof and sound dairy sector and, consequently, support in the market and society at large. To enable this, the Sustainable Dairy Chain has formulated goals on four sustainability themes. This report describes these goals, the indicators chosen to monitor progress and the performance on these indicators in the year 2013. This report shows that progress been made for a number of themes, but also that further growth of the sector requires a decrease in emissions per kg of milk. This report also describes the revised goals that will be used from 2014 onwards and the consequences of the revisioning for the monitoring.
