Jamie Mackay: host of The Country on Fonterra's warning to farmers about meeting sustainability targets



Fonterra Chair Peter McBride and chief executive Miles Hurrell announced at the annual meeting in Rotorua that they would need to set (and stay within) targets for Scope 3 carbon emissions.

The Country’s Jamie Mackay explained that because Fonterra works with farmers to create their products, the affiliated farmers would also be affected by these emissions regulations.

Jamie Mackay also observed that sustainability is very important to consumers, so farmers would need to take emissions regulations seriously.

Dairy farmers still reeling from floods have been given a helping hand, with the state and federal governments locking in funding for key projects to prepare for the next disaster.
