Joining forces with the agricultural industry to help bust GHG myths

Busting GHG myths

By Tom Gill

At Promar International, we’ve joined forces with the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers (RABDF) and other industry stakeholders to help highlight accurate facts about greenhouse gas emissions from the sector ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow at the end of October (31st Oct). 

The aim is to help inform everyone of the actual levels of greenhouse gas contributions coming from the dairy industry and dispel many of the current myths. Therefore, we ask individuals, key industry stakeholders, businesses, and organisations to promote five key facts internally and to the broader public before, during, and after COP26. 

It is anticipated UK agriculture will come under the spotlight at COP26, which is why it is important to shout about the good work the dairy industry is doing to reduce emissions from what is already quite a low level.

Let’s work together

Sustainability is at the forefront of conversations, from farm through to the consumer. There is a high concern amongst industry stakeholders, including farmers, that too much misinformation is circulating about the contributions the dairy industry is making towards tackling the climate emergency.

These facts seek to rebalance the story! We are proud to work with our partners at the RABDF, and across the sustainability industry group, to demonstrate how we are seeking to achieve climate reductions as well as improve dairy product quality. By working together, the industry is making a difference and we want our farmers to know that they are a key part of the solution.

The RABDF has produced draft social media posts, newsletter snippets, visuals and posters that are free to copy and paste from their website at 

RABDF Managing Director Matt Knight says: “We want to make it as easy as possible for people to spread the good work of the dairy industry and reinforce the fact dairy products aren’t only good for human health, they are also good for the planet too.”
