New Web Sites Promote U.S. and Global Sustainability Initiatives

Sep 28, 2009

The Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy and a consortium of seven international dairy organizations each launched a brand-new Web site last week to highlight current sustainability initiatives underway in the dairy industry.

The Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy launched its U.S. Dairy Sustainability Commitment Web site at This site explains the domestic industry's roadmap to greenhouse gas reduction and related projects, provides the science behind the lifecycle assessment currently underway, and offers detailed best practices and resources for each segment of the U.S. dairy supply chain.

Dairy professionals who attend Worldwide Food Expo, October 28-31 in Chicago, and visit the show's Sustainability Pavilion will have the opportunity to create brief videos highlighting their company's sustainability efforts. These videos will then be featured on More details on the Sustainability Pavilion at Expo are available here.

Last week's launch of the new global Dairy Sustainability Web site,, was timed to coincide with the opening of the World Dairy Summit that was held in Berlin. Hosted jointly by seven dairy organizations, including the International Dairy Federation and Global Dairy Platform, the site features best practices and an online catalogue called the "Green Paper" to illustrate improvements made or in progress throughout the global dairy supply chain.

With more than 260 case studies included to date, the Green Paper is a valuable resource for learning how others in the industry are conducting lifecycle analyses and management, reducing emissions and improving energy, transportation and resource efficiency.

IDFA encourages members to visit these sites and share the links and information with colleagues.
