Processing milk is our core competence. That’s why our efforts to protect the environment are underpinned by the opinions of proven experts – experts such as those of our partner, WWF Switzerland.
Every year, we emit more greenhouse gases than those that are absorbed by natural ecosystems. Science leaves no room for doubt as to the consequences: Earth is getting warmer and warmer. And at an alarming rate. «Climate disturbances that took place over thousands of years in pre-human times are now occurring within a few decades,» says Elmar Grosse Ruse, climate expert at WWF Switzerland. The devastating consequences of climate change for our society, the economy and precious ecosystems are already unmistakeable.
Independent action is essential, including from an international milk processor like Emmi. After all, agriculture and in particular milk production are one of the main causes of global warming alongside the combustion of crude oil, natural gas and coal. «By pledging to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by a quarter between 2014 and 2020, Emmi is making an important contribution,» says Grosse Ruse.
