Our footprint policy

At Laïta we embrace responsible behaviour to reduce our environmental footprint.

Reducing our environmental footprint

Fighting global warming

We are fully committed to fighting global warming and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and are targeting a drastic reduction in our Bilan Carbone® footprint upstream and downstream of our activities.

  • Working with farmers to reduce our net carbon footprint per litre of milk produced by 20% by 2025, compared to 2016 levels.
  • Establishing a long-term upstream carbon strategy for the period 2030 - 2050 to achieve one of the best carbon footprints per litre produced among European dairy producers.
  • Reducing our scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030 compared to 2019 levels.
  • Developing a carbon trajectory for scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions for the period leading up to 2050, with recognition by an internationally-recognised external authority.

Respect for life in our operations

Alongside our farmers and stakeholders, we are implementing more actions to improve animal welfare, preserve biodiversity and prevent pollution.

  • Encouraging farmers to use the multi-sector animal welfare diagnostic system, with the aim of having 100% of farms assessed by the end of 2024.
  • Working with farmers to draw up an improvement plan for at least two major issues each year (awareness campaigns, targeted studies etc.).
  • Working with stakeholders to draw up a biodiversity policy.
  • Eliminating accidental pollution, which is harmful to the aquatic environment.

Limiting the use of resources and developing the circular economy

Tangible commitments include fighting deforestation, managing resources - water in particular, reducing packaging, implementing eco-design, waste management anti-food-waste.

  • Membership of Duralim to help improve the sustainability of livestock feed and achieve zero imported deforestation by 2025.
  • Establishing a policy to reduce our impact on the water cycle.
  • Attaining 100% recyclable and/or reusable packaging by 2025.
  • Gaining FSC certification for all production sites that use cardboard packaging, starting with Créhen and Ploudaniel and bringing in all sites by the end of 2025.
  • Training our teams to analyse the life cycle and eco-design of products, to include all Paysan Breton products by 2025.
  • Instituting an improvement plan for industrial waste involving mapping and flow diagnosis.
