Salzburg’s sustainability report released

Salzburg Milch of Germany has just released a new sustainability programme, which is a bundle of ecological, economic and social measures. The dairy employs 373 and supports around 2,400 farming families. In 2020, the dairy took Matthias Greisberger on board as sustainability manager to actively promotes the sustainability agenda. 

The new sustainability report summarises the diverse efforts made in recent years. These include innovative energy-saving projects, some of which have even won awards, or the construction of the largest rooftop photovoltaic system in the province of Salzburg on the roof of the cheese dairy in Lamprechtshausen.  

Another important aspect is the reduction of plastic. A total of 165 tonnes of plastic have been saved since 2017 just by switching the Salzburg Milch Premium product packaging to environmentally friendly and plastic-reduced materials. 

For Andreas Gasteiger, managing director of Salzburg Milch, sustainable thinking also includes a social dimension in addition to the economic and ecological ones: “Social responsibility also includes paying our farmers a fair milk price. At Salzburg Milch, this has been among the top Austrian dairies for years. In the social area, we support numerous projects and cooperation partners, such as Caritas Salzburg, the Kulinarium Salzburg or regional social markets.”
