Fonterra says it cut its greenhouse gas emissions from coal by 11% in one year thanks to the conversion to renewable wood pellets at its Te Awamutu site.
“This was the major contributor to a global reduction of 6.5% in scope one and two GHG emissions,” the dairy co-op said yesterday with the release of its latest sustainability score card.
Fonterra is targeting a 30% reduction in absolute scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030 from an FY18 baseline. It plans to get out of coal completely by 2037.
