Farmers discover the concept of antithesis.
In a contradictory statement, Arla Foods, a dairy company, has just promised to make its more than 2,000 farms scattered throughout the UK and its entire business ventures, completely carbon neutral by 2050.
The pledge may be considered ambitious, but this does not seem to affect the firm, which said the process will depend on “radical changes” and the technological advancement of the coming decades.
Environmentalists, such as the Vegan Society, have rebutted the statement, stating the company’s goals as impossible, since neutralizing carbon emissions may even be possible, the largest agricultural gas emissions come from cows that release methane naturally.
It is not yet known exactly what emissions are included in Arla Foods’ target.
