FrieslandCampina is the first dairy company in the world to introduce a tailor-made sustainability tool for its more than 17,000 Dutch member dairy farmers. The online tool which is a simulation program supports them in further improving their sustainable business operations management.
The tool enables farmers to predict the total sustainability effects for their specific dairy farm as it integrally calculates the impact of sustainability measures aimed at, for example, reducing CO₂ emissions or improving biodiversity.
The online tool shows the impact of sustainability measures in a “Foqus planet score”. Foqus planet is FrieslandCampina’s quality and sustainability program, that monitors (among other things) FrieslandCampina’s progress in achieving its sustainability objectives. In this way, FrieslandCampina stimulates its member dairy farmers to make dairy farms more sustainable. Member dairy farmers individually decide on how they want to contribute to FrieslandCampina’s sustainability goals. Now they can use the tool to acquire customized insights that helps in making an informed decision.
