Environmental and Socioeconomic Life Cycle Assessment Of Canadian Milk

In an effort to clarify the path towards sustainable milk production in Canada, the Dairy Farmers of Canada, in the context of the Dairy Research Cluster, commissioned the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Canadian Milk. The project’s objectives were threefold: 1) To evaluate the environmental and socioeconomic impacts of dairy production in Canada; 2) To identify potential areas of focus for further improvements of the dairy sector’s sustainability; 3) To provide the framework and the building blocks to support comparison and benchmarking.
