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. We offset the remaining CO2 emissions that still exist after our reduction measures by purchasing emission credits. This is backed by concrete climate protection projects certified by international standards. In addition, we get involved by planting trees in Germany and promoting the formation of humus.
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.
