Good On PurposeSM Supporting Earth in More Ways Than One
Committed to Making Earth-Friendly Choices
Earth is our home and we need to take care of it. That’s why we’ve been committed to sustainability since 1983.
Stonyfield’s Sustainability Goals
At Stonyfield, we’re committed to improving how we work so we can leave the planet better than we found it. We’ve set aggressive goals for ourselves in order to make a significant impact:
- Reduce Stonyfield’s greenhouse gas footprint (absolute scope 1, 2, and 3 greenhouse gas emissions) by 30% by 2030 (verified science-based target!)
- Reach 100% renewable electricity for our Londonderry, NH, manufacturing facility by 2025 through a combination of purchasing renewable energy credits and supporting the construction of several new solar arrays (achieved!)
- Reach 100% renewable electricity for our dairy supply chain by 2025
- Have a carbon positive dairy supply chain by 2030
Helping Agriculture Become a Climate Change Solution with OpenTEAM
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, about 11% of emissions come from agriculture. This means that if we’re serious about reducing our impact on climate change, we need to work with the farms we source from to help them reduce their emissions, too. This is a long game and requires true collaboration with the farms in our network to help them understand, measure, and ultimately manage their impact.
Every farm is unique and has different opportunities to reduce their GHG emissions and increase soil carbon sequestration. That’s why we worked with Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment, the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research, the USDA, and others to build OpenTEAM.
OpenTEAM is an innovative ecosystem of tech tools that offer farmers access to more accurate measurements and recommendations on the specific actions they can take to improve their environmental impact. Stonyfield provided some of the initial seed funding for OpenTEAM and is an active participant in trialing the tools in the program and helping build the platform.
Advocating for Our Earth Since 1983
Here at Stonyfield, we consider ourselves Earth allies. We’ve been advocating for our planet since our origins running an organic farming school, and we continue to make every serving of yogurt with our impact in mind. A lot of time has passed since the early 80s, but our commitment to being stewards of Earth is unwavering. You can see what we’ve already achieved in our annual Impact Reports.
