GREENHOUSE GASES

leaves Dean Foods is committed to providing consumers with nutritious food and beverages that are produced using responsible methods that minimize greenhouse gas emissions during production and distribution. 2015 Emissions

We set our first greenhouse gas reduction goal in 2008, aiming to reduce emissions per gallon produced 20 percent by 2013. After completing a thorough examination of reduction methods and timelines, we revised our GHG reduction goal in 2012 to a 25 percent reduction per gallon produced by 2020. Our new timing aligns with the comprehensive dairy industry goal, also 25 percent by 2020, established by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy in 2010.

Since our baseline year of 2007, we have reduced our absolute GHG emissions by 28% and our GHG emissions per gallon of product produced by 13%.

With the completed spin-off of our WhiteWave business and the sale of our Morningstar business in 2013, all sustainability metrics, going back to 2007, have been recalculated to reflect the current structure of Dean Foods.
