Sustainable Dairy Partnership

Sustainable Dairy Partnership

The Sustainable Dairy Partnership (SDP) provides a consistent global approach to dairy sustainability in commercial relationships between dairy buyers and processors. The burden of buyer-specific programmes and audits is reduced, restoring focus on what really matters: continuous improvement on dairy farms. The Sustainable Dairy Partnership was formed to promote alignment and recognise and reinforce existing approaches at national and company levels. The Sustainable Dairy Partnership (SDP) is built on the Dairy Sustainability Framework (DSF) and its Global Criteria on 11 sustainability principles. The SDP is designed to accommodate the diversity of dairy systems and supports verification, so it is consistent and credible.

Using existing structures and leveraging dairy processor management systems that are already in place – as well as relationships with farmers – the SDP enables processors to provide evidence and show continuous improvement.

The SDP aims to reduce audit fatigue and save costs by using existing resources to deliver direct benefits across the value chain.
