Milan – October, 2nd 2019. “We announce the extraordinary result of achieving carbon neutrality for all the activities of our group. Whatever the response of science to climate change and its causes will be, our result is still a success because the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is invoked by all scientists, as the dramatic increase in GHG emissions represents a negative fact for the environment “, explains Roberto Brazzale, president of the Group.
The Brazzale dairy Group is the first one to reach the goal of carbon neutrality and the uniqueness of its model lies in having achieved this neutrality through a production and productivity growth by almost three times. The adoption of innovative practices in climatically favored regions allows, in fact, to develop innovative production processes that avoid dangerous drifts towards remedies that depress growth.
The need to regulate food supply to feed today’s 7.5 billion human beings on the planet, which is expected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, does not allow us to approach these issues without a strong sense of reality and clear ideas.
“There’s a growing public concern around the world about environmental issues, but concrete and practicable solutions are not suggested, only actions that will negatively impact growth”, explains Brazzale, “for this reason our announcement is a “happy news” for the citizen/consumer: not only can CO2 be reduced, but it can also be done by increasing production. The innovative production systems that make this achievement possible offer, moreover, formidable improvements in terms of animal welfare, biodiversity, savings in natural and economic resources, quality and wholesomeness of the products “. Without an action of deep innovation, to which the company has gone through with its production processes and their allocation to the most suitable climatic areas, this result would be unthinkable.
