Lauriston Farm case study with SRUC

Investing in data for nature-based projects - a case study from Lauriston Farm

This case study video from SRUC’s Thriving Natural Capital Centre explains why it is useful to invest in data collection to establish baselines, and prove changes through time. The Lauriston Farm team and their investor Federated Hermes Ltd., discuss how they are collecting data to prove the social, economic and environmental impacts of their regenerative agriculture and community engagement practices. Presented by Dr Hannah Rudman.


The baseline carbon footprint measure of the farm has been done with the help of Agrecalc. The first step was measuring the carbon footprint at the start of the project, and then again, after the regenerative practices have been established. The data is continually been collected and assessed to understand the real impact and inform the ESG decisions.
