At Ornua, we truly believe growth can be a force for good in the world. Good growth is sustainable growth, nourishing a growing global population, protecting our animals, building prosperous communities, and supporting our people.

With growth, comes responsibility. To grow responsibly we need to put sustainability at the heart of everything we do. Growing for Good, Sustainably, our detailed roadmap for a sustainable future, focuses on three core areas – caring for our environment, our animals, and our community.


Our pillars

Caring for our Environment

The impact of climate change is being felt across the world and we have a responsibility to enact real change. We want to build on our global reputation for sustainable Irish dairy. Driving down our emissions will touch every part of our business and will require a farm to fork approach adopting new practices and technologies.

Caring for our Animals

Ireland is already a world-leader when it comes to animal welfare. Our cows enjoy a natural life, grazing outside for most of the year and are protected by high standards of animal welfare. As we grow, we must protect our low intensity, grass-fed family farming system and the health and wellbeing of our animals.
