B+LNZ Gisborne/Wairoa Roadshow – Responding to a Changing Climate: Know your Numbers Workshops | Beef + Lamb New Zealand

B+LNZ Gisborne/Wairoa Roadshow – Responding to a Changing Climate: Know your Numbers Workshops

Under He Waka Eke Noa, by the end of 2022 all farmers need to know their GHG numbers and by the start of 2025 all farmers must have a written plan in place to measure and manage their GHG emissions. If we can achieve this, it will contribute to the industry staying out of the Emissions Trading Scheme and having a system that recognises carbon sequestration on farm and separates the price of methane from the price of carbon.

The B+LNZ Greenhouse Gas Calculator is an easy-to-use free tool to help you measure and report your property’s emissions and sequestration.

The workshop covers:

  • The background to the calculator and why it is important to ‘know your numbers’
  • A demonstration of what the calculation involves
  • Time to complete your own farms calculation
  • How to complete your own GHG action plan with examples of the farm systems, and management actions that can be taken to sustainably manage GHG emissions and documenting your own plan.
  • By the end of this three hour workshop, you will ‘know your numbers’ and have a documented plan to measure and manage your emissions and have contributed to meeting the sectors He Waka Eke Noa requirements.
