2014: A milestone year for dairy sustainability


The dairy industry will face a new raft of challenges on sustainability during 2014, which will have important ramifications for the supply chain, according to Dairy UK.

Dr Judith Bryans, Chief Executive of Dairy UK, said: “There are a number of reviews and initiatives that the industry will face during the course of the year and it is important we are ready to meet these challenges.

“The European-led review of Best Available Techniques Reference Documents (BREFs) may have a significant impact on costs and it is essential that the UK industry plays an active role in this process.

“Other reviews are taking place in Europe such as the Commission’s climate change and energy package and reform of the EU ETS. In the UK the industry will also be addressing how to refine and progress the Dairy Roadmap.

“All of these issues suggest it will be a milestone year for sustainability in the dairy sector. As such, Dairy UK will be dedicating additional resources to work in this area.”

Dairy UK Policy Director Peter Dawson’s portfolio is being extended to include sustainability and Dairy UK has appointed Jo Stewart as Environment Manager.

Jo has worked previously with the Climate Action Programme and Carbon Clear.

Mr Dawson said: “Sustainability remains at the heart of decision-makers’ agendas across Europe and it is essential that the UK industry’s interests are represented vigorously.”
