Spotlight Target Area: Water
Glenilen Farm believe in the benefits of sustainable business from brand strengthening
and long-term cost savings, through stronger energy independence and believes in the
concept of bringing locally made produce to the global market. As Glenilen’s’ primary
raw material, milk, is produced on the family farm as well as being sourced from
neighbouring farms, this allows the company to have total control over its primary
raw material and ensures it is produced in the most sustainable manner possible while
adhering to the highest standards in animal welfare.
Within the water target area, Glenilen Farm performed strongly throughout 2020 with
water intensity being reduced by over 7%. This was achieved by several initiatives,
including participating in a dedicated water stewardship programme and completing
the installation of a rainwater harvesting system.
