Arla cares

Nature and environment

Our goal is to be at the forefront when it comes to sustainable dairy farming and environmental standards in the dairy industry, which is why we developed the Closer to Nature™ program.

Size Leads to Opportunities

Our size gives us many opportunities to explore and invest in new environmental solutions. When we choose new environmental goals, our results have a great impact. The 13,500 cooperative Arla farmers work with sustainable dairy farming and 19,000 colleagues to take action in 133 dairies and offices.
