NZMP launches “first-of-its-kind" digital carbon footprint tracker

Fonterra’s dairy ingredients and solutions brand, NZMP, has unveiled its digital Carbon Footprinter tool to provide emissions profiles on New Zealand-sourced dairy products. The Carbon Footprinter will enable customers to access 2023 emissions data for NZMP New Zealand-sourced dairy products. The tool will forecast potential emission reductions for products up to 2030, based on the assumption that Fonterra achieves its 2030 climate targets. According to Fonterra’s director of sales and marketing for global markets, Gillian Munnik, the Carbon Footprinter is the “first of its kind and scale” in the dairy industry and makes it quick and easy for customers to access NZMP product emissions data. Through the digital tool, customers can select from NZMP’s major New Zealand-sourced dairy product categories, input the volume bought and swiftly retrieve the emissions data of the products they purchase. Munnik said: “We know that for many of our customers, our NZMP products form a large part of their Scope 3 emissions. We are being open and transparent and making it simple for our customers to understand how our climate plans and actions directly relate to the ingredients they purchase from us.” “Fonterra’s New Zealand farmers already have one of the world’s lowest on-farm emissions footprints, and this new tool demonstrates that NZMP has the dairy expertise and mindset to support our customers with their own emissions reduction journey.” Carbon Footprint Certificates will be available for customers to provide independent assurance of NZMP product-level emissions. This data is free of charge and made available through New Zealand-based sustainability accreditor, Toitū Envirocare. The news comes days after Fonterra announced it was merging its New Zealand and Australia businesses to form Fonterra Oceania. You may also be interested in:
