Carbon Reporting

Conducting a carbon assessment can be a valuable means to evaluate resource efficiency and productivity on farm, as much as understanding your farm's carbon footprint. A carbon assessment, or 'carbon audit', takes existing information and data about a farm's land, crops, livestock, energy and waste, and generates reports on carbon footprints as well as technical efficiency and productivity, helping to identify management areas where improvements can be made.

There are many carbon 'tools' or 'calculators' available, offering different features, and showing results at whole farm, enterprise and product level.

FAS can offer support to fund a carbon audit for your farm. Advice and funding is also available through the 'Preparing for Sustainable Farming' Scheme, which you can read about on the Rural Payments website.
