The Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy formally debuted the Net Zero Initiative Monday, an industry effort to help dairy farms implement new technologies and more sustainable practices to work toward a goal of carbon neutrality and improved water usage by 2050.

The center also announced a commitment of as much as $10 million and a multi-year partnership with food giant Nestlé to help toward carbon neutrality by scaling access to sustainable resources and practices on U.S. farms. 

Nestlé, which makes brands with dairy like Carnation, Stouffer’s and DiGiorno, is the first major partner for the initiative, the center said in the release. Nestlé’s involvement could push other big companies to join the Net Zero Initiative and contribute funding.
