Danone’s Sustainability Efforts Reach Down To Farm Level

September 9, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
As part of its pledge to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, and to achieve 100 percent B Corp. sustainability certification, the French multinational last year launched a coalition to look into the widespread adoption of regenerative agriculture practices in the dairy sector. The company’s global farming expertise manager says he is working on regenerative agriculture projects in 15 countries where Danone sources its milk and vegetable products. The mission, says Cees Jan Hollander, is to show farmers how they can benefit financially, socially, and ecologically by engaging in regenerative farming. “We want to motivate farmers to really work with soil … to make our soils more fertile, and put carbon back into the soil.” Hollander is also interested in technologies that promote emissions reduction among cattle, and to that end is monitoring pilot projects to see which feed additives might be effective and healthy for dairy cattle.[Image Credit: © Danone S.A.]
