If You Can’t Measure It, You Can’t Manage It. The Why, the What and the So-What of Greenhouse Gas Assessments in the Dairy Chain, Jeremy Hill, PhD, Fonterra, New Zealand

Abstract: Dairying regions around the world face a similar challenge in the reduction of GHG emissions. This presentation will discuss the importance of accurate measurement and how this can feed into management practices that reduce the environmental impact of a food systems supply chain. Examples from Fonterra and the Sustainable Nutrition Initiative will be used to illustrate the journey we are currently on as we continue to explore what a sustainable food system looks like.
