Hamish Reid, Synlait, speaking at NZACCC 2019

Hamish Reid, Synlait director of sustainability and brand spoke of Synlait’s pivot to “doing milk differently for a healthier world.” This includes environment, people and enterprise, for the Certified B-Corporation. It means reducing GHG emissions by 2028 on-farm by 35 percent per kg of milk solids and off-farm by 50 percent per kgMS. The company is dropping coal, as an energy source, and moving to the installation of three of New Zealand’s first electrode boilers. It is also aiming to reducing water use by 20 percent per kgMS, nitrogen loss on-farm by 45 percent and off-farm by 20 percent and improving the quality of off-farm wastewater by 20 percent.
