In New Zealand, around a quarter of our emissions come from dairy farming. To meet New Zealand’s GHG targets and to retain our place as the world's most carbon-efficient farmers, there is much we can do.
Reducing our footprint
DairyNZ is helping farmers meet targets for N leaching and GHG emissions. There are many farm management options that can be taken to reduce both, while staying profitable.
What climate change means
The problem of climate change is a global one – every country in the world is contributing to it and every country needs to be part of efforts to limit further climate change.
There are actions available to farmers to help lower greenhouse emissions on farms.
