Sustainability Action Payment (SAP)
As part of ongoing commitment to assisting our 5,000 milk suppliers as they continue to enhance the environmental and economic sustainability of their family farms. Callan Co-op has signed up to the SAP environmental action programme.
In accordance with Ireland’s sustainability plan, Living Proof, the program is intended to help dairy providers lessen their carbon footprint, improve water quality and biodiversity, and improve air quality and soil health.
By completing particular sustainability initiatives, dairy suppliers will be paid 0.5 cents per liter (cpl) (including VAT) as they continue to implement a variety of measures.
The actions are very similar to the ones recommended for combating climate change in Teagasc’s emissions reduction Marginal Abatement Cost Curve (MACC) climate plan.
