The Danish Agriculture & Food Council launched the Global Climate Task Force and VikingGenetics is proud to be part of this effort to reduce carbon footprint globally.
Denmark accounts for 0.1 percent of the world’s Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions, but to face the global climate challenges more cross-border efforts are required. In this context, the Danish Agriculture & Food Council launched the initiative called Global Climate Task Force with the participation of 10 solid companies from the Danish food cluster.
The new group will develop concrete initiatives to minimize greenhouse gas emissions at a global level.
“Denmark alone can´t bring a solution to the global warming, but VikingGenetics, as a large cooperative of dairy and beef producers, can share its knowledge on genetics to support other countries. We welcome this initiative and are happy to be part of it”, says Niels Bo, interim CEO at VikingGenetics.
“For many years, we have strived with success to breed healthy, efficient, trouble-free cows, and we have also invested heavily in better feed efficiency to have a more sustainable milk- and beef production”, he adds.
The most important part of the future work of the Global Climate Task Force will be to identify how the Danish food cluster can be part of the solution to the global climate challenge.
