Linda Thompson is the Head of Operational Energy & Climate in Fonterra’s Global Sustainability team. Linda grew up on a sheep and beef farm in rural New Zealand, which embedded a passion for the land and agriculture. Linda gets to pursue both of these passions in both her professional and personal life.
Linda works for Fonterra, NZ’s largest dairy co-operative, where she leads the strategy and program to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions across the manufacturing sites. Linda also has a beef farm where they are passionate about creating a great product, minimising the environmental impact of beef production, and leaving the land in a better state for future generations to enjoy.
