Here’s what a new report says about the carbon intensity of UK’s livestock farming
Currently, technologies could not deliver even half of the UK government’s net zero goal by 2050, said a report monitoring the carbon intensity of the island country’s livestock farming.
In order to meet the net zero carbon target in the United Kingdom, the Committee on Climate Change suggested about 64% reduction in GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions from the farming and land-use sector. However, livestock doesn’t have a specific target, it is suggested that the same target is apt.
As per the Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock (CIEL) report, if all known methods for mitigation of emissions were adopted, the livestock sector can only deliver less than 20% of the aspirational carbon reduction target in the next 15 years.
