The three categories of membership of the DSF
DSF Implementing Members are those organizations (such as dairy processors) who have committed to delivering a continuous sustainability improvement program in line with the DSF requirements which includes reporting annual progress to the DSF Secretariat.
DSF Aggregating Members are organizations who coordinate a DSF continuous sustainability improvement program for more than one dairy organization. These can be a few organizations collaborating on sustainability or a sustainability program that covers a wider geography or even a country wide effort. Focusing on improving the same priority criteria, the individual organizations implement their own unique sustainability programs, though for the DSF requirement, all quantify progress using the same DSF Indicator Metric. The Aggregating member compiles an annual report from all parties and provides an annual report to the DSF.
DSF Affiliate Members
DSF Affiliate Members are organizations who are not in a position to commit to implementing a dairy value chain sustainability program though want to publicly support the work of the DSF.
Please note the membership commitments are different depending on which type of membership you choose.
