We are continuing the rollout of the Climate Track to Swedish and German pig producers. We will also start enrolling Danish and Swedish dairy cattle farmers, and test and adapt Climate Track for young bulls in Sweden and Polish pigs.
A unique set-up
In the Climate Track farmers share their production data and various sustainability information with us, and in return, they get individual feedback on their sustainability performance compared to a Danish Crown national average, as well as a input on key activity areas that can lower their greenhouse gas emissions. On this basis, they set their own emission reduction targets.
The collected data is incorporated in our scope 3 calculations of greenhouse gas emissions, which are therefore more precise. And this helps us reach our shared efforts to reduce the climate impact at farm level.
What is part of the Climate Track?
Pig and cattle producers under the Climate Track collect and systematically record data and information about their farms, focusing on sustainability parameters such as the following. Currently, the parameters for which a particular farmer collects data depend on their country and animal type.
- Production efficiency
- Feed composition
- Production of feed crops
- Livestock housing systems and technologies
- Slurry handling and biogas
- Workplace assessments
- Employment contracts
- Diseases and mortality
- Use of antibiotics
- Share of nature area
- Type of nature area
In 2022/23, we also continued the roll out of the Climate Track with focus on Swedish and German pig suppliers, and we continued to collaborate with relevant industry players in research projects on climate solutions of tomorrow.
We will continue to enrol the Swedish and German pig farmers in the Climate Track together with other animal types and countries, and we will continue the development and implementation of roadmaps to meet scope 3 emissions reduction targets.
