The toolkit, developed in partnership with Dairy UK, the Environment Agency and other food trade organisations, is designed to help smaller businesses to comply with environmental legislation.

Dairy UK Environment Manager Fergus McReynolds said: “We are pleased to have been involved with the development of the Environmental Management toolkit. The project should particularly help our small and medium sized members to become more sustainable and to reduce the risk of pollution.

“The toolkit complements existing initiatives in the dairy sector, such as Dairy UK’s environmental benchmarking tool and the Milk Roadmap. British farmers and dairy companies have set the pace globally through the Roadmap’s ambitious environmental targets on energy, waste, water and packaging.

“Plans under way at Dairy UK include a carbon footprinting guide for dairy, a renewable energy seminar in the spring and helping government educate consumers about reducing food waste in the home.”

The Environmental Management toolkit will help food & drink manufacturing businesses to:

  • Improve sustainability and reduce costs
  • Achieve and maintain compliance with environmental legislation
  • Reduce the risks of pollution
  • Improve and develop their environmental management system.
