Our methodology has been verified by the leading authorities on climate science at the UK Centre for Industrial Sustainability, at the Institute for Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge.
This crucial distinction was supported by a recent Government report, in which the Eggbase calculator was compared to 5 other more general agricultural carbon footprint services. The conclusion was clear – not all carbon footprinting tools were created equal, and it’s important to pick the right tool for the job.
VERIFIED BY THE LEADING AUTHORITIES
Our methodology has been verified by the leading authorities on climate science at the UK Centre for Industrial Sustainability, at the Institute for Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge. This ensures complete confidence in the results and assurance around the high standards to which we adhere.
Most importantly, whilst some calculators operate a ‘user-entry’ service, we believe that the complexity involved in poultry requires specialist expertise, to protect the integrity of the results. So, we don’t put our name to data we haven’t validated.
FEED AND LIVESTOCK EMISSIONS ARE A CRITICAL ASPECT OF FARM FOOTPRINTING
Our poultry farm carbon assessments are the most precise available in the poultry sector. Uniquely, we operate a clearly defined boundary, allowing direct like-for-like comparison over time to demonstrate progress, or valid benchmarking between peers. Embedded feed (including Land Use Change) and livestock emissions are a critical aspect of farm footprinting, which are absent from many other calculators, leading to an incomplete and potentially misleading picture.
The Eggbase poultry-specific, carbon footprinting is the class-leading precision tool in this sector. It delivers easy-to-interpret insights and a rapid response, all at a great price.
