Agriculture, Achieving Net Zero Emissions

Achieving net zero in the agricultural sector by as early a date as possible – ideally 2030 – is vital in order to mitigate the UK’s contribution to climate change, and to provide ‘head room’ for other economic sectors to decarbonise. There are a number of practical, implementable approaches to achieving net zero emissions, including: halving meat and dairy consumption by 2030, halving food waste by 2030, and reducing the UK’s demand for imported and domestically grown animal feed by enabling the use of food surplus as safely-treated feed for pigs and chickens.
