New guidelines are available for the calculation of carbon sequestration in cattle production systems. Until now there has been no consensus on an appropriate LCA-based approach for application in cattle production systems to quantify carbon removals from the atmosphere.
Project partners included: Arla Foods, Mars, Fonterra, Innovation Center for US Dairy, McDonalds, Danone, FrieslandCampina, Nestle and Rabobank.
The Project partners, who have been working on this development since 2018, have ‘donated’ the finished ‘product’ to the International Dairy Federation to complement their suite of climate related resources for the global dairy sector.
DSF Implementing and Aggregating Members, have the opportunity to find out more about C-Sequ, at a DSF webinar on 13 October where Anna Flysjö of Arla Foods, project partner and DSF Member will provide more detail on the guideline development and the opportunity it will give the dairy sector as it works towards net zero ambitions. A recording of the webinar will be available in the DSF Members area.
