Collaborating with EDF
If you don’t already know them, let us introduce you to Environmental Defense Fund. As one of the world’s leading international nonprofit organizations, EDF creates transformational solutions to the most serious environmental problems. This includes building climate resilience on the front lines—America’s farms. To do this, EDF links science, economics, law and innovative private-sector partnerships. But no one person or company can tackle climate change alone, so we’re partnering with them to create a chorus of support for policies that build climate resilience on America’s farms.
How we’re leading
At Horizon, we’re looking out for the horizon we all share. That’s why we’re going carbon positive by 2025, from farm to fridge. We helped pioneer the organic movement in 1991 as the first organic milk brand sold across the country. Now, we’re standing up for the planet by making sustainable dairy farming the new normal. Check out our action steps here.
“Climate change is one of the most urgent threats we face today. This is why we set out on the journey to become carbon positive within five years and remove more carbon from the environment than we put in. We also understand this, by itself, is not enough. Collective action is how we bring about meaningful progress and it’s our hope that others join us in advocating for climate policy to ensure the future we share sits on a brighter horizon.” – Regan Ebert, President, Horizon Organic
“I’ve been a Horizon Organic farmer for more than 20 years, seeing first-hand how organic farming can make a difference in healthy soil, happy cows and great milk. Horizon has always put farmers at the center, and their ambition to go carbon positive is in line with my vision for the future of farming. With their support of our farm, and others, the Horizon Farmer Investment Fund will help us do what we do best – roll up our sleeves, tackle the issues and keep on farming, for many generations to come.” – Ed Zimba, Horizon Organic farmer partner at Zimba Dairy
“Working for a brand with a history of pioneering new practices that prioritize the health of people and the planet is incredibly rewarding. My wife and I have two young children, so combating climate change through our Carbon Positive by 2025 commitment means a lot to me. Every child deserves the brightest future and healthiest planet we can give them.” – Lee Nelson, Brand Manager, Horizon Organic
