More on Hein Schumacher, CEO of Royal FrieslandCampina, Netherlands.
Margrethe Jonkman, Global Director Research & Development at FrieslandCampina adds: “Our farmers take all kinds of actions to reduce their climate impact, that’s part of our ambition for a carbon neutral future. Carbon sequestration is a crucial solution for that. The C-Sequ guidelines are a key tool to help measure the farmer’s efforts effectively and scientifically. It helps them to know how well they do or if there is room for improvement. Next to that, it can be a base to reward those efforts.’’
Although testing of the C-Sequ methodology is already underway in more than 100 different cattle production systems around the world, additional dairy and beef pilots are encouraged in order to maximise learning. Results from these trials, including potential improvements, will be incorporated into an updated methodology to be released next year”.
