Towards Net Zero Emissions – Carbon Dioxide

This is the second in the series of dairy insight publications covering ‘Net Zero Emissions’. We will attempt to identify the sources of each GHG, how it may be reduced and aim to outline current and future actions that may help the UK dairy industry become net zero emissions by 2040.

On dairy farms Carbon exists in many forms and is embedded in the inputs bought onto farm, including: feeds, fertilisers and fuels. Carbon is also stored on farm in the plants and soil in either an organic or inorganic form. The flow of carbon between the various pools results in either a net gain or loss of carbon over time. In this note we will only consider Carbon flows. Methane and Nitrous Oxides will be considered in subsequent notes with a final summary that incorporates the main findings.

Issued December 2019
