The LIFE BEEF CARBON project aims to reduce the carbon footprint in the breeding of beef cattle thanks to the application of numerous strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The program provides farmers and operators in the sector with tools and methodologies for the assessment of the carbon footprint at farm level that can be applied in a system of measurement, communication and verification (MRV) and to the construction of a voluntary market of the quotas of reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the livestock sector.
On the occasion of FAZI 2021, on Friday 5 November, at 9.30, CREA promotes the conference entitled “Guidelines for carbon neutrality in beef cattle farms“.
The meeting will present the results and conclusions of the project, which saw the participation of 2,000 farmers from four European meat-producing countries. Guidelines will be presented that farmers can follow to reach the goal of carbon neutrality.
