Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), a Kansas City, Kan.-based dairy cooperative owned by family farmers, announced a continued step forward in its commitment to sustainability, as it becomes the first U.S. dairy cooperative to set a science-based target to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As a cooperative invested in the dairy supply chain from farm to table, DFA is taking a strong position by setting a science-based target and committing to reduce both direct and value chain GHG emissions by 30% by 2030, from a base year of 2018. In addition to these efforts, DFA said it is exploring emerging technologies and working with other industry partners, including Vanguard Renewables, a Massachusetts-based renewable-energy developer and ABC member, to benefit its farm family-owners’ operations and reduce GHG emissions. “We began working with Vanguard a few years ago, and our partnership with them continues to grow, as we think there’s a lot of opportunity to create synergies between our farms and plants,” said Darr.
