A: Quick glance enterprise emissions The 'opportunity level' (high, medium or low) is the likelihood for improvement gauged against other farms in that sector.
B: Physical performance of enterprise It is much easier to relate to performance indicators, actual sales, feeds and other inputs used. This becomes particularly useful when comparing years and for group comparisons.
C. Whole farm sustainability indicators Sustainability is the ability to deliver a product the customer wants year after year without adversely impacting the environment. Carbon is, however, only one part of the wider sustainability 'formula', some wider indicators are shown in this section.
D. Whole farm emissions by gas and benchmarking comparison Carbon footprinting similar farm types allows a business to benchmark environmental performance against a group average.
E. Potential actions to reduce emissions Examples of practical measures that could reduce emissions are shown below. Technical advice should be sought before making any business changes.
