Climate-neutral milk: reducing and offsetting CO2
From the cow to the retailer’s cold storage facility, the emissions relating to our dairy’s first climate-neutral product, climate-neutral milk, are recorded. The aim is to avoid and reduce as many emissions as possible along the entire process chain. The end result is a residual amount of unavoidable CO2 emissions, which we offset by purchasing certificates. These help fund climate protection projects in Germany and internationally, which are implemented by our recognised project partners.
Incidentally: 80% of the milk at Gropper is sourced from within a 50 kilometre radius – and this relates to all products, not just the climate-neutral milk. The short distances from the farmers to the dairy are good for the environment.
