Commitments to action

Biodiversity Monitor

Rabobank, RoyalFrieslandCampina, World Wide Fund, Duurzame Zuivelketens, Versnellingsagenda Melkveehouderij

We would like to stress that a supply-chain-based approach is essential. This is why Dutch dairy farmers have partnered with Royal FrieslandCampina, the World Wide Fund for Nature and Rabobank. In order to improve overall engagement levels, the  Duurzame Zuivelketen (Sustainable Dairy Supply Chain) and the Versnellingsagenda Melkveehouderij (Dairy Farming Acceleration Project) are also affiliated with this initiative. Our goal is to encourage other supply-chain partners and stakeholders to also start using the Biodiversity Monitor for the Dairy Farming Sector in the future. This type of partnership will enable the Biodiversity Monitor for the Dairy Farming Sector to become an independent standard. The tool will serve as a driving force and set in motion a trend that will improve both the biodiversity of Dutch soil and farming practices employed by Dutch farmers.
