Nourishing a better planet

FrieslandCampina is committed to make our work and that of farmers around the world more sustainable by nourishing a better planet, now and for generations to come. FrieslandCampina has set out 6 priority areas which align with 7 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. At FrieslandCampina Ingredients, we’re focussing on 4 of those key initiatives, where we can truly make the difference for our customers and their consumers.

Better nutrition, affordable for all

We help our customers differentiate with healthy, sustainable nutrition all over the world. Whether that’s by improving holistic health with innovative solutions that start with the gut, helping babies develop healthy immune systems with the most researched GOS in the world, or keeping people active and strong throughout different life stages with our range of dairy and plant protein solutions.

Better living for farmers

Our 15,703 member dairy farmers in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany are committed to nourishing by nature now and for generations to come. It is our goal to support our farmers by protecting their livelihoods, ensuring a fair price for their nutritious dairy ingredients and reducing on-farm emissions.

Better climate, carbon neutral future

Our dairy ingredients will be climate-neutral by no later than 2050. We have set out a climate plan with clear targets and concrete actions, with a checkpoint being a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. And we’re not starting from scratch either. Sustainability has been central to our ethos for a long time and we’ve already made significant improvements over the years.

Better nature, improving biodiversity

Our member farmers are dedicated to improving biodiversity and having a minimal impact on our local environments. And we built our Biodiversity Monitor to help our farmers measure and track on-farm biodiversity. The monitor is aligned with the guidelines of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

Our sustainable ingredients and solutions

Carbon-neutral base powder

Demand for more sustainable infant formula solutions is on the rise. Parents want to give their children the best start and the best future. This is why we launched Essential Start Carbon Neutral –
a perfect base for dry-blending infant milk formula that provides the essential nutrients babies need with reduced carbon emissions and carbon offset projects.
