DairyCo project to establish an annual average carbon footprint figure for GB milk production
|Source : DairyCo|
This project funded by DairyCo works with the E-CO2 Project to identify key 'hot spots' on-farm to improve business efficiency, which will automatically reduce the farm’s carbon footprint.
The baseline measurement for carbon footprints of the 415 dairy farms involved in the study has been undertaken and will be reported in July 2011. The final reports for year two and three of the project will be issued in January 2012 and January 2013 respectively.
This important and valuable project also works with the Guidelines for the carbon footprinting of dairy products in the UK (mentioned below) and the IDF guidelines ‘A common carbon footprint approach for Dairy: The IDF guide to standard lifecycle assessment methodology for the dairy sector.
Completion date: Spring 2013
