We are all being told to control and minimize our carbon footprints. We all know it has something to do with being eco-friendly and the global warming issue. But as far as understanding how it develops or how it can be emitted is another topic. In fact, you may even go to the extent of considering, how can I measure my carbon footprint?
The PAS 2050 has been known to help aid in identifying such carbon footprint issues. However, some have aired concerned with regards to its consistency and updates especially in the area of agriculture. But never fear, they are in the works. It is best to see what would cover all aspects of business in all sectors we thrive and depend on.
Accredited assessment under PAS 2050 of the GHG footprint of individual food products is unlikely until early 2010. Temple added: “We need to continue to work with the developers of the PAS to provide a credible, rigorous and practical way to measure GHG’s associated with agricultural products. Ideally, this will become a tool for farmers and growers to improve processes within their businesses and subsequently reduce the Carbon tyreprint and hoofprint of British agriculture in a sustainable direction.
