About the Carbon Footprint Reducer Certification
The goal is to certify products that are proven to contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in animal production.
rBST and Sustainability
Through a notable increase in milk production efficiency, the incorporation of rBST has the potential to mitigate environmental impact.
If used on 15% of the 10 million dairy cows, the adoption of rBST could result in:
The equivalent of removing approximately 390 thousand cars from circulation each year, or planting approximately 290 million trees anually.
The environmental gains produced on 540 thousand hectares of agricultural land.
A reduction in fossil fuel consumption enough to heat up more than 15,000 homes.
The reduction in the consumption of sufficient water to supply around 10,000 homes.
When consuming cows milk supplemented with rBST, a family of 4, drinking 3 glasses of 200 ml of milk per day, would increase carbon sequestration by 156 kg, which is equivalent to planting 25 trees anually.
