Bulletin of the IDF N°519/2022: C-Sequ LCA guidelines for calculating carbon sequestration in cattle production systems
|published date||13 September 2022|
The concept of carbon sequestration is acknowledged as a potential way for agriculture to not just emit carbon dioxide, but store it, removing it from the atmosphere. Up until now there has been no consensus on an appropriate LCA-based approach for application in cattle production systems to quantify carbon removals. The focus has always been on emissions only. As the cattle sector works towards net zero ambitions, an appropriate science-based approach is required to not only account for emissions but also quantity carbon removal as part of the GHG footprint reporting.
