Climate Action in the Food & Beverage Sector

Climate change has emerged as one of the major challenges of our time. The Food & Beverage sector, along with its upstream Agricultural component, are considered key actors in providing positive solutions to reduce carbon emissions and enhance production system resilience throughout the value chain.  As one of the global leaders in the food and beverage industry and the largest dairy company, the Lactalis Group believes that its size is a strength that offers opportunities to combat climate change.

By embracing the Lactalis Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy to promote sustainability and environmentally friendly behaviors, LNS aims to reduce its environmental impact. Aligned with the United Nations Global Compact, in which the group actively participates, the Lactalis Group’s CSR policy and commitments are divided and organized into three different axes:
