Dairy and the Sustainable Development Goals: The Dairy Sector’s Contributions and Opportunities

The launch of UN sustainability and climate goals in 2015 challenged national governments and industries to review their existing sustainability activities. By setting these goals, the UN is striving to achieve balances across the three sustainability dimensions (environmental, social and economic). Advancement of the goals requires the implementation of sustainability activities and voluntary reporting on progress with regard to the differences in national circumstances. Various stakeholders have already started to take action and report their progress against sustainability goals, delivering intended nationally determined contributions (measures and plans) towards climate change mitigation.
