Meadow, one of the UK’s leading value-added ingredients businesses, is on a rapid growth trajectory. This growth is matched with an equally impressive sustainability drive. The company has set out the ambition to lead the decarbonisation of the dairy industry with the lowest carbon footprint milk in the UK.
Meadow’s customer base is one of household names, including Ben & Jerry’s, Premier Foods and Yeo Valley Organic. As such, its ambition to provide ingredients that create the lowest carbon footprint in the industry promises to make a significant impact. As part of the company’s sustainability initiatives, Meadow has partnered with Altruistiq to measure and manage their emissions within direct operational control as well as indirect emissions within the value chain.
Using the Altruistiq platform, Meadow confirmed that over 97% of emissions come from dairy farms, along with identifying other concentrated emission sources. By utilising these data insights, it has championed collaborative projects with new and existing partners to reduce shared carbon footprint.
“We knew that one of the keys to reaching our ambitious sustainability goals was to focus on data measurement. Altruistiq has taken a complex situation and has made the process of capturing and understanding Meadow data much easier.
“The data provided by Altruistiq has allowed us to take our CO2 measurements down to product level, to do customer reports, and to put in intensity metrics. This information allows us to work better with our customers on identifying and reducing CO2 emissions and will ultimately help us meet our ambitious target of becoming the lowest carbon dairy in the UK.”
