Why Join

The DSF encourages members to make the most of the benefits!

The following benefits are available to Stage 1, Implementing and Aggregating Members


DSF Members Area

This is an area of the DSF website dedicated solely for Implementing and Aggregating members. The groups provide an online platform for DSF Members to share challenges and collaborate with peers. It contains a wealth of resources such as recent webinar recordings, presentations and case studies. You should have received login information when you joined the DSF but if you haven’t or need to reset your login credentials, please contact the DSF Secretariat.



the DSF offers a programme of webinars throughout the year on a range of dairy sustainability topics that Implementing and Aggregating Members are very welcome to attend. They are a great opportunity to develop knowledge, discuss sustainability topics and interact with other DSF Members from around the world. Recordings of previous webinars are available in the Members area.



‘Buddies’ for New Members

Depending on where your organisation is on its sustainability journey when you join the DSF, you may like to take up the offer of mentoring from an existing DSF Member. As the DSF operates in a ‘pre- competitive’ space and encourages sharing and support between members, this opportunity is quite unique. If you would like the opportunity to be put in contact with an existing DSF Member who can answer questions and be a sounding board for your ideas as you embark on implementing the DSF process, please contact the DSF Secretariat who will identify the most appropriate Member ‘Buddy’ for you.


Community of Interest Groups

These are open only to Implementing and Aggregating Members of the DSF. The groups provide a platform for DSF Members to share challenges, collaborate in identifying solutions and experiences across the globe under the DSF Sustainability Criteria.
