As a provider of products and services to dairy farmers all around the world, DeLaval can help the dairy industry work towards a sustainable future.
This means providing products and solutions that improve working conditions for farmers and ensuring that animals are well taken care of, while at the same time reducing the environmental impact on every farm and ensuring its long-term success. Our approach to sustainability has three main perspectives – Environment, Food Safety & Animal Welfare and Social & Economic.
Animal welfare is essential to promoting a more sustainable dairy industry, and DeLaval plays an important role in supporting its customers by integrating animal welfare into everything it does.
Animal welfare can be described as the animals’ mental and physical state of well-being. DeLaval is fully committed to following the globally established ‘five freedoms’ of animal welfare. These are: freedom from hunger and thirst; freedom from discomfort; freedom from pain, injury, and disease; freedom to express normal and natural behaviour; and freedom from fear and distress.
