We welcome DMK Group as a SAI Platform member

6th December 2022

“As DMK Group, we are working to reduce our GHG emissions by 20% by 2030 and have also submitted our targets to the SBTi. As we continue to identify emission reduction paths at the dairy farm level, we are initialising a net zero farming pilot. Dealing with the challenges of climate change can only be solved by working together as an industry. Thus, we are happy to be part of SAI Platform and to collaborate on future-proofing agricultural practices to accelerate the transformation to more sustainable food systems.”

Dr. Philipp Inderhees, Global Head of Corporate Strategy, DMK Group.

DMK Group is Germany’s largest dairy cooperative, representing around 5,200 dairy farmers and employing more than 7,000 employees in Europe and worldwide. Their product portfolio ranges from cheese and fresh dairy products to baby food, ice cream and ingredients for industrial production.

Their 2030 Strategy covers the four thematic areas on climate protection, animal welfare, biodiversity and people. Since 2016, the cooperative has offered its milk producers a bonus programme to promote responsible and sustainable milk production. It aims to raise farmers’ awareness of issues such as safety, quality, animal health and the environment and rewards them for their commitment. DMK Group is also part of the SBTi and submitted its targets for validation in June 2022.
