The project’s key objective was the development of a sustainability app through a partnership between twelve dairy farmers in the Dutch provinces of Drenthe, Groningen and Friesland and UNIFORM, an international company that develops management software for dairy production. The intended focus of the sustainability app was to provide insight into sustainability, energy savings and water consumption and provide recommendations on what measures can be taken and how they should be implemented to have a minimal impact on costs and operations.

Building on the Climate Check tool, Arla has introduced a point-based Sustainability Incentive model to help fund and motivate actions required to hit its 30% emissions reduction target by 2030 against a 2015 baseline. Under this model, farmers can collect points based on their environmental sustainability activities under 19 different levers.
