At Aurora Organic Dairy, we pride ourselves on our many initiatives to be a responsible corporate citizen and to be good stewards of our natural resources. Simply put, our goals are to tread more lightly on the planet, to treat our people and animals with respect, and to give back to our local communities.
Sustainable farming is a commitment to biodiversity, natural resource conservation and understanding our impacts. This includes soil health, waste management, water and energy conservation, and a full spectrum of initiatives that consider our employees, animals, stakeholders and communities.
Because we are the owners of our farms and processing plant, we can study our environmental footprint closely using primary data, gathered by measuring our our own greenhouse gas emissions, energy use, water use and waste generation.
We have been measuring these impact areas since 2008. We will track our progress toward our many initiatives and will report back to our stakeholders annually.
