Dairy Sustainability Alliance®: About the Alliance

The Dairy Sustainability Alliance® is a multi-stakeholder group consisting of representatives from across the dairy community, including farmers, processors, manufacturers, retailers, and representatives from nonprofits, trade organizations, government and academia that provides a precompetitive forum for member organizations to share knowledge, collaborate on issues affecting the industry at large and accelerate progress toward common sustainability goals. Collectively, members of the Dairy Sustainability Alliance® strive to measure, improve and communicate dairy’s role in a sustainable food system. We define sustainability as providing consumers with the nutritious products they want in a way that makes the industry, people and the earth economically, environmentally and socially better – now and for future generations.

Guiding Principles



The Guiding Principles of the U.S. Dairy Sustainability Commitment highlight our support for a sustainable food system that promotes the current and future health and well-being of our cows, our consumers, our communities, our employees, our resources and our planet.



The Dairy Sustainability Alliance® meets in person twice a year and regularly shares information across the network to support and sustain individual and collective efforts to advance dairy sustainability. Learn more about membership and upcoming events.
