ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the impact of the farm business in Great Britain on climate change. He notes that media reports suggest that livestock farming creates more of a greenhouse gas problem than transport. A project called E-CO2, which aims to help the business reduce carbon, was formed by Kite Consulting, Advance Sourcing and CMS UK Services. He also discusses the calculation of carbon footprints in agriculture.
