DFC Targets Net-Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2050
On February 2, 2022, Pierre Lampron, president of Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC), announced that DFC will be committing to a goal of net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from farm-level dairy production by the year 2050.
Fortunately, our sector has a long history of environmental stewardship, and our net-zero goal is sending a clear message to Canadians, consumers, stakeholders and governments: dairy farmers are leaders, and we are part of the solution!
To get us there, DFC is working with experts to lay out different pathways to net-zero – because each farm is unique, and what works for one may not work for another. Farms will be able to identify their best path forward and Lampron stressed that farmers will not be alone in this effort: DFC will leverage partnerships and government programs, as well as provide tools and support.
