An elevator pitch for AgRE Calc, an innovative carbon foot printing tool for agriculture.
Globally, carbon emissions from agriculture are set to continue rising as demand for food grows in line with Global population to approx. 10 billion by 2050. The Scottish Government ambition to achieve 42% reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2020, and 80% reduction in GHG emissions by 2050, AgRE Calc provides a comprehensive and applicable tool to enable primary producers, stakeholders within the supply chain and Government bodies in the delivery of these GHG reduction goals. AgRE Calc provides the most comprehensive, independent and reliable service to assist in calculating, and reducing, whole enterprise GHG emissions, and recommendations for mitigation strategies.
Built on SRUC’s world class agricultural GHG emissions research, AgRE Calc (Agricultural Resource Efficiency Calculator) offers accurate calculations of current emissions, identifying areas for improvement and benchmark progress towards a net-zero emissions target, as well as access to solutions to mitigate inevitable emissions.
