Organic yogurt brand Stonyfield Organic has announced that it will aggressively slash its carbon output in a bid to help with climate change-combating initiatives. The yogurt producer aims to reduce its emissions by 30% by the year 2030, which is a science-backed target that will help to keep 70,000 metric tons of carbon from being emitted every year. The move from the brand is aligned with the Paris Agreement and makes the company one of 50 in North America committed to curbing emissions.
The new eco initiative was explained by Director of Sustainability Innovation at Stonyfield Organic Lisa Drake who said, "We know there is great urgency to solve climate change. A healthy planet is one of Stonyfield’s guiding tenets, and we’re proud to be among the earliest corporations to take significant action toward driving down global greenhouse gas emissions.”
