Reaching carbon neutral beef production with Edinvale farm
Using Agrecalc for their carbon audits year after year, the business has achieved considerable savings in resource use and also lowered its carbon footprint by a third, from 51 kg of CO2e / kg of output down to 27 kg of CO2e / kg.
Angus Soft Fruits is a leading supplier of berries to UK & European retailers, ensuring year-round supply of berries direct to the customer. Working with SAC Consulting, they are taking action to reduce carbon emissions in the berry supply chain.
In this Agrecalc case study, read how the sum of small gains allowed for 48.52% increase in output between the first audit in 2017 and the third audit in 2020, and the total emissions per kilo of output were reduced by 34%.
Hard data enables scope for improvement in Somerset
As part of PRISM2030, a major initiative launched by the ABP Food group, one of Europe’s leading privately owned food processors, and Agrecalc’s consultancy partners, The Anderssons Centre, the Look family farm in Somerset benefited from using Agrecalc to identify improvements and allow for practical recommendations.
This pioneering project set out to demonstrate how farms can make structured progress towards reaching national emissions targets. Benchmarking in Agrecalc, along with other forward-thinking MRV methods, demonstrate that agriculture has the capacity to capture, manage and store carbon.
