Catalyzing Action on Dairy Methane

The recently announced Dairy Methane Action Alliance is a global initiative to accelerate action and transparency on methane emissions across the dairy sector. Recognizing the urgency of the climate crisis and the significant role of the food sector in reducing global emissions of methane, the Dairy Methane Action Alliance has stepped forward to catalyze climate action within the food industry.

The two newest members of the Alliance include Clover Sonoma, a regional dairy brand in California, and the global restaurant brand StarbucksLaunched in December at COP28, these new members bring the Alliance to a total of eight global food and dairy companies, representing over $230 billion in annual global sales. Clover Sonoma and Starbucks join the founding members of the Alliance: the Bel Group, Danone, General Mills, Kraft Heinz, Lactalis USA, and Nestlé.

By joining this groundbreaking initiative, signatory companies commit to annually account for and publicly disclose methane emissions within their dairy supply chains, and to publish & implement a comprehensive methane action plan by the end of 2024.

Now, we’re calling on all companies in the global dairy supply chain to join this effort to expedite methane reductions and deliver a larger impact and scale.
