The South Pole Group is hosting an interactive webinar with industry leaders on Climate Action in the Dairy Supply Chain, on June 13th 2017, 16:00 - 17:00 CEST. Please follow the instructions below to register for the webinar.
More than 6 billion people consume milk and dairy products worldwide, a number which is expected to grow as the world gets richer, more populous and more urban. According to the FAO, world milk production is expected to increase by 177 million tonnes by 2025, at an average growth rate of 1.8% p.a. over the next decade, making the dairy sector one the fastest growing agricultural sectors, creating important economic opportunities for farmers worldwide.
At the same time, the dairy sector is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases in agriculture and is itself increasingly impacted by changing climate patterns, particularly in developing countries.
To meet the growing global demand, the dairy sector, therefore, faces the two-fold challenge of increasing productivity while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with the dairy supply chain.
Grounded in insights from the latest research on climate change and dairy supply chains presented by Wageningen University and Research(WUR), the webinar will discuss opportunities for collaborative action to realise climate-friendly dairy supply chains and include case studies from leading companies taking action on climate change in their dairy supply chains.
