History

 

The Dairy Manufacturers Sustainability Council (DMSC) is a nationally recognised Community of Practice which was initiated in 1995 and is composed primarily of environmental and sustainability group managers from Australian dairy processors. It is an evolution of the Dairy Manufacturers Environmental Forum (DMEF) whose original focus was on common environmental issues such as regulatory compliance and wastewater treatment. As community and business understanding around the value of broader sustainability-related practices grew the focus of the group expanded to include wider resource efficiency issues such as energy and carbon management. To reflect the new direction and focus a change of name seemed appropriate and accordingly, the DMEF evolved to the DMSC. The DMSC was launched in March 2007 at the Sustainability Victoria offices in Melbourne. 

Today the focus of the DMSC remains very much on ensuring industry-wide regulatory compliance while also continuously working towards improving sustainability practices and spearheading collaborative action across the industry. We are committed to measuring and monitoring our progress, and sharing our knowledge to tackle ongoing challenges.

With eight DMSC member companies responsible for processing over 90% of the national milk supply, DMSC’s leadership plays a large part in minimising the industry’s environmental impact and ensuring the sustainable profitability of a key Australian industry into the future.
