Maker of Nationally Distributed Tillamook® Cheese, Ice Cream, and Other Dairy Products Targets 30% Reduction in Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2030

October 6, 2022 /CSRwire/ – Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA), a Certified B Corporation®, is committing to the following dairy industry’s net zero climate action goals by 2050:
To spur progress toward the net-zero goal, TCCA has set an interim goal of 30% reduction in Scope 1, 2, and 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030.

“At TCCA, our farmers operate with the next generation in mind,” said Paul Snyder, Executive Vice President, Stewardship, TCCA. “Since our founding in 1909, our farmer-owners have built everything with a long-term outlook to ensure that farms and communities are here for generations to come. That’s why being good stewards of cows and farms, of people and products, of our communities and the environment, is central to everything we do.”

In the United States, the dairy industry contributes 2% of total GHG emissions. While the industry has reduced emissions per gallon of milk by more than 60% since the 1940s, TCCA acknowledges there is more work to be done to drive down total emissions.

Climate Action Plan: A Roadmap Toward Progress
TCCA’s environmental sustainability goals are backed by its newly developed Climate Action Plan that defines strategies for making climate-related progress over time. Snyder explains that in the past year, TCCA has worked collaboratively across all departments to outline more than 25 strategies to help achieve the 2030 target. TCCA also teamed with an external consultant to calculate an emissions benchmark, as well as related goals.

“The electricity, steam, and fuel that we use at our processing plants and to power our offices and fleet account for only 3% of our total emissions (Scope 1 and 2 emissions),” said Snyder. “The biggest challenge we face in meeting our climate commitment will be engaging our supply chain partners to reduce Scope 3 emissions, which make up 97% of our total emissions.”

TCCA is adopting a multi-faceted approach to its climate action plan involving its facilities and fleet, on-farm practices and packaging. More details on TCCA’s carbon footprint and a summary of the Climate Action Plan can be found at www.Tillamook.com/climate.

FACILITIES & FLEET:
As part of the Climate Action Plan, TCCA will invest in improvements to its facilities and fleet, while working with its supply chain partners on the following actions:
ON FARMS:
PACKAGING:
The Climate Action Plan also includes TCCA’s packaging goals that were announced in 2021. The packaging goals include specific measures such as increasing recycled content to 50% for paper packages and 20% on average for plastic packages by 2025. TCCA funded a life-cycle assessment that found making these changes could significantly reduce GHG emissions from their packaging portfolio. Additionally, TCCA is committing to a goal of 100% of its packaging solutions to being recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2030.

“Our Climate Action Plan is a roadmap – not a GPS. Implementation will require perseverance and continued collaboration across our cooperative and externally with our supply chain and customers,” said Snyder. “While we don’t have all the answers, we do have a dedication to continuous Improvement, a challenger mindset and inspiration from our farmers that will help protect and preserve our ecosystems now and for future generations.”  

TCCA will share its year-over-year progress toward the climate goals in its annual stewardship reports. Additional information about the TCCA Climate Action plan is also available at www.Tillamook.com/climate.
