2015/16 DMSC Scorecard Released
01-Jun-2017

The DMSC Company Members and Dairy Australia are pleased to announce that the 2015/16 Dairy Manufacturing Environmental Sustainability Scorecard is now ready for release. This report highlights that over the last five years, through concerted industry effort, DMSC member companies have achieved significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity, water consumption intensity and waste sent to landfill. The 2015/16 DMSC scorecard also includes performance data on wastewater, waste diversion and energy intensity for the first time.

In 2010/11, DMSC members reported a GHG intensity of 178.7 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per megalitre of milk processed (t CO2 -e/ML). DMSC’s 2015/16 reporting shows we have reduced this number to 140 tonnes — a 21.7% reduction over five years and an 8.2% reduction compared to 2014/15. In just the last thee years, emissions have been reduced by approximately 751,135 tonnes of CO2 -e. Dairy manufacturers are therefore currently on-track to meet their GHG emissions intensity reduction target of 30% by 2020.
