Our Sustainability Report shows the progress we’re making towards our targets – while also recognising there is more work to be done.

Our New Zealand farmers are already among the most efficient in the world, with one of the lowest on-farm carbon footprints in the world. But we’re not stopping there.

Over the last year we have made good progress towards our targets, but there is still more work to do if we are to have the kind of world we want to leave for future generations.


Let’s take a look at a few of Fonterra’s biggest sustainability wins of the year…
