EDA position on current environmental challenges, including EU carbon-neutrality by 2050

The European dairy sector plays a key role in making the food system more sustainable and is willing to further engage in order to reduce its environmental impact. The Dairy Product Environmental Footprint (Dairy PEF) has shown our proactive approach in increasing the sustainability of the food system. In this context, EDA welcomes the EU Commission strategy aimed at achieving the overall UN SDGs, as well as the more specific item of EU carbon-neutrality by 2050, and acknowledges its responsibility to contribute to the transition towards an environmental sustainable and climate-neutral Europe, while continuing to provide healthy and affordable nutrition for all.
