Growing our reach and responsibility.
"Agriculture, as a whole, has become more sustainable with a smaller environmental footprint. It’s not one individual farmer’s story. It’s everybody’s."
We’ve created a Climate Action Plan as part of our commitment to reducing our impact on the planet. Take a look at out our path to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, with an interim goal to reduce emissions by 30% by 2030.
Sustainability:from farms tofacilities
We’re working hard to protect resources on-farm, in our facilities and within our fleet.
tons of CO2e captured with biodigesters in the past decade. That’s equivalent to annual GHG emissions from 107,000 passenger vehicles.

of our farmer-owners plant cover crops, which are proven to significantly reduce soil erosion and contamination of waterways.
When it comes tothe environment,good is nevergood enough
We’re working hard to support and promote a closed-loop system, where a dairy farmer recycles all nutrients and organic matter back to the soil. Regenerative agricultural practices, air quality improvements, and conversion of manure into energy are a few of the ways we’re working to close the loop on farms.
Protecting watersheds is essential to preserving ecosystems so farmlands can thrive. Trout Unlimited is working with farmers and other landowners in Tillamook County to improve fish passage and restore riparian habitat. TCCA is providing a $500K partner match. Along with other partner matches and grants, the program will bring in a total of more than $5M for watershed improvements in the area.
