It is in our nature to be positive

More than half of the world’s GDP is dependent on nature. Nature underpins billions of livelihoods. So, Australian Dairy, in recognising the value of nature, was among those who celebrated World Environment Day this month.
 
From processors developing new sustainable packaging to producers trialling feeding cattle seaweed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Australian Dairy is leading the way in environmental stewardship.
