Sustainability is a word that carries a lot of weight. One of the more common associations that is connected to the term is taking care of our environment. The release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s report last month (a UN panel) certainly was an eye opener for many about the severity and potentiality of climate change in our world. From changing weather patterns, to droughts, to flooding, the reach of global climate change can have a severe impact on the affordability and accessibility of food, including the production of nutrient dense products.  Tackling this challenge will require a lot of teamwork in the dairy and food industries. Afterall, the health of our planet and our people isn’t a competitive advantage.
