Description: In this talk, John Hutchings describes some of the sustainable innovations being undertaken by the dairy industry. John Hutchings is the General Manager of Sustainability at Fonterra. In New Zealand, agriculture is responsible for 48% of our total greenhouse gas emissions, compared to 16% in Australia and just 6% in the United States. And the organisation with the biggest ability to impact our national emissions is Fonterra: directly responsible for 15 of the 75 million tonnes of greenhouse gas that we emit annually. John is committed to further embedding sustainability concepts into Fonterra's decision making. He prioritises carbon footprint/climate change and water quality issues by focusing on-farm. John was a key contributor to Fonterra's 18-month Carbon Footprint study with the University of New South Wales. John has primary responsibility for the Dairying and Clean Streams Accord which has been the main instrument in keeping stock out of streams and generating better farmer understanding of how to reduce nutrient losses to streams. John was previously an advisor to the Prime Minister and Cabinet on sustainability and local government. His early career was in senior management positions within local government. He has a Master of Public Policy degree from VictoriaUniversity.
