Farming for a Better Climate is a farmer-led initiative exploring practical ways to move towards net-zero emissions.
Agrecalc helped identify the source of emissions associated with an activity or a product and highlights areas to improve that will reduce emissions and save money.
Following the link to the website Farming for a Better Climate, you will get access to more than 50 downloads.
These consist of Practical Guides, Case Studies and Newsletters, as well as detailed discussions on steps taken by various farms. The Practical Guides aim to inform on carbon footprinting and locking in carbon, and the Case Studies bring forth the work that was done on Climate Change Focus farms.
Each business used Agrecalc to pinpoint various areas of their farms where efficiency could be improved, whether it was optimising livestock performance, looking into better utilisation of soils, fertilisers and manures or adapting traditional and new farm buildings to a changing climate.
Agrecalc is the UK’s leading agricultural resource efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions calculator.
It has more than 6,000 users across the UK and this number is growing rapidly as governments, retailers, commercial farm businesses and other farming industry stakeholders want to measure and mitigate agricultural emissions.

Accurate carbon accounting is now being demanded by supply chains, governments, and financial institutions to explain, and improve, the carbon footprints of land use and food.
